Default How to Improve Speed of a Slow Wireless Network

1.Whatever type of Wi-Fi or router you might have, the positioning in the device comes with an impact on your signal. Place your router in a central location. When possible, stick it near the midst of the property. Keep your router from walls and metal objects. These will obstruct the signal, making it weaker. A weaker signal could lead to slow connections.

2.Most routers come with a preconfigured channel, usually in the heart of the spectrum. Much like about the radio, broadcasting with an empty channel reduces interference and allows a clear signal to have through. The largest source of interference from this is nearby wireless networks. Use a free network stumbling tool or perhaps the configuration tool provided with your wireless network card on your pc to discover nearby network channels. In case a neighbor's network is broadcasting on channel 6, look for a different channel including 1 or 11. Select this by signing in on your router using the supplied instructions.

3 .Wireless interference is another often overlooked problem with wireless network speed. Interference can come not only from other wireless devices but from appliances such as microwaves and televisions, and sometimes electrical outlets. Keep your wireless router away from other computer and electrical equipment. This can make a tremendous difference in wireless speed.

4 .If you are still having trouble due to a weak signal or interference, you may have to upgrade to better hardware. Adding a better antenna to your router or computer can boost the signal reception to acceptable levels. Upgrading to a faster technology router is also an option. However, you will have to ensure your other hardware is compatible.
