How can I improve my Wi-Fi signal?

There’s nothing worse than having a spotty Wi-Fi signal when you’re trying to do the things you enjoy most online. However, there’s no need to fret. There are several ways to improve your Wi-Fi signal, depending on what is causing the issue.

Here are some general tips to improve your signal:

  1. Move your modem: Try moving your modem to a more central location. This can help you spread the Wi-Fi signal more evenly throughout your home.
  2. Use a Wi-Fi Mesh system: A mesh system, such as GO Smart Wi-Fi can help extend the range of your Wi-Fi signal by boosting its strength in areas where the signal is weak.
  3. Reduce interference: Other wireless devices, such as cordless phones or Bluetooth devices, can interfere with your Wi-Fi signal. Try turning off any devices that may be causing interference or move them away from your modem.
  4. Change your modem’s channel: If you live in a densely populated area, you may be experiencing interference from other Wi-Fi networks. Changing the channel on your router can help to reduce interference and improve your signal strength. Check out this FAQ for help with changing your Wi-Fi’s channel when using a GO modem.
  5. Use a wired connection: If possible, use a wired connection for devices that require a more stable connection, such as gaming consoles or desktop computers. This can help to free up bandwidth on your Wi-Fi network and improve the overall performance of your network.
