1. A computing device, comprising:

  • a processing resource; and

    a memory resource storing machine-readable instructions to cause the processing resource to;

    proactively identify a line-of-sight (LOS) blockage of a network signal transmitted on a millimeter-wave link by comparing signal strength associated with the millimeter-wave link to signal strength associated with a wireless local area network (WLAN) transmission channel; and

    reroute network traffic from the millimeter-wave link to the WLAN transmission channel in response to the proactive identification of the LOS blockage of the network signal, wherein the LOS blockage is identified based on a difference existing between the signal strength associated with the millimeter-wave link and the signal strength associated with WLAN link determined by the signal strength comparison.
