Most of us have Wi-Fi installed at our home or office. But sometimes we face problems with our Wi-Fi connection due to lack of service by service providers. Here are some tips and tricks to get them fixed :-
- Placing the Wi-fi Router at the right place is most important for a smooth wireless internet connection. Routers emit radio signals, which make it critical that you place it away from other electrical equipments like televisions and refrigerators.
- It is ideal to place the router in a central location, especially away from direct walls and as high as possible from the floor so that the signals from the router travel in a downward direction.
- Identifying dead spots is where the router is unable to direct signals is important. Dead spots can be identified with help of applications like Wi-Fi Inspector, Assia's Cloudcheck, Net Stumbler or Amped Wireless Wi-Fi Analytics Tool.
- A poor Wi-Fi connection can also be caused by signal interference from other routers installed close by or due to some other electrical equipment nearby. This problem can be overcome by changing the frequency channel by tweaking the options found in the router's default settings page. Channels 1,6 & 11 are the best choices for minimal interference and maximum output.
- It is possible that someone in your vicinity is stealing your data and resulting in a poor internet connection. You can check the number of devices connected to your Wi-Fi connection from the router's settings page.
- It is highly recommended that you reboot the router manually every once in a while.
- By following the above ways, you can ensure that the frequency support and teh channels of the router get internally refreshed, which ends up boosting your Wi-Fi speed output as well.
