While wifi signals can be boosted with the use of better cables, internet connectivity, and a good wifi extender here are some easy ways to speed up your wifi today.
Position Your WiFi router in the perfect spot
Is your router in a closet? Bad placement is it. Electronic devices, walls, even fish tanks can muffle your wifi signals. The best area to place a wifi router is in the center of the home, and rather than setting it on the floor, it is wise to use a table or shelf. Having a wifi router in the open – free from other signal intrusive blockages – helps, as does turning the antennae of the device straight upwards. Therefore, placing the router keeping these factors in knowledge is the optimal way to extend the wifi range of it. If possible, mount your router in the halfway of a wall.
Get a signal booster
If messing with your current wifi router seems of no use, having a range extender positioned in your home can speed up wifi performance. Especially, if your house is large, the probability of having wifi signals in every corner is hard. So, pair your router with an extender that transfers wifi signals into the farthermost areas of your home. You can buy a Netgear extender and make it work by doing Netgear Genie Smart Setup. You can connect the extender to any router, so no compatibility issues. They are commonly easy to set up, use, and able to fill dead zones with wifi signals.
Use a password
Guarding your home wifi network with a secure password can help boost its speed, also giving vital security. It is also good to keep hackers away from the reach of your wifi. So, check what devices are connected with your network at present, more devices using your wifi will slow your wifi speed. If any suspicious connection is found by you, remove its access, and change your password instantly.
