7 Ways you Can Boost Your WiFi Signal
Frustrated with slow wifi? Several factors can affect the speed of your wifi signal. Here are seven simple tricks to help you get the most out of your connection:
- Ensure optimal router placement
Rule of thumb, if it’s wired — you can tuck it away, out of sight. BUT if you have a wireless router, make sure you place it in an open space, away from walls and obstructions.
- Set up a wireless range extender
All routers can only cover so much area, that’s why it’s important to get a wireless range extender a.k.a a wireless repeater if you’re planning on covering a large area.
- Upgrade to a mesh-based wifi system
Consider getting Netgear’s Orbi if you want to get seamless connectivity everywhere in your home plus complete control of your network using an app.
- Hard-wire internet-hungry devices
Do this to your Smart TVs, gaming consoles, and desktop computers
- Use a dual-band router
- Select a channel on the wifi band
Select one that has the least interference with other SSID connections
- Check your equipment’s firmware
Make sure your equipment (routers, laptops) are up-to-date!
