Remove signal blockers
Walls, closed doors, and shelving units can block your Wi-Fi signal. Refrigerators, microwaves,
wireless speakers, and baby monitors can also affect your Wi-Fi strength and signal so please keep these away from your router and ensure it’s unobstructed by any of these types of interferences.
Like any other type of technology, routers can sometimes need a restart. If you are experiencing any issues please try this first.
Avoid congested channels
Some Wi-Fi channels can become congested by other users’ EG neighbours. Apps like Netspot and Wi-Fi Analyser can help identify the least congested channels. Rebooting can also help.
Newer and larger devices are much better suited for Wi-fi speeds. Smartphones and tablets are a
great way to conveniently connect to Wi-Fi but due to the size, may not have the same capacity as a PC.
Disconnect unused devices
Often, devices that have once connected to your Wi-Fi, will stay connected even when not in use. This causes unnecessary congestion. Switch off or disconnect any device that may be connected to your Wi-Fi whilst not in use.
Use ethernet cable
Connect any device you can through an ethernet cable. Not only with this provide a faster speed to that device but will also allow a faster speed to other devices not directly plugged in.
Use powerline adapters
Some homes may have black spots when it comes to Wi-Fi signals due to distance or obstructions. Powerline adapters will boost the signal throughout these problematic areas.
