Home is where the Wi-Fi is
Here are five simple steps to help you get the most out of your Wi-Fi connection
Keep your modem central
Wi-Fi signal strength decreases the further you are from your modem. Place your modem in a central spot and away from the wall. Also, keep your modem higher up to help your Wi-Fi signal spread out in every direction.
Avoid Wi-Fi interference
Devices like microwaves, radios, cordless phones all interfere with your Wi-Fi signal. Keep your modem away from these devices to avoid interference.
Don't obstruct your modem
Many make the mistake of placing their modem in a cupboard or drawer. This weakens your Wi-Fi signal strength, so keep your modem unobstructed for best performance.
Change your Wi-Fi channel
Last but surely not least, you may improve your Wi-Fi performance by changing your modem's Wi-Fi channel. Visit our FAQs for step-by-step instructions on doing this.
Buy a Wi-Fi extender
