WIFI Speed is very important these days,it has actually become a necessity for our daily lives. However when your wifi speed becomes slow all of a sudden it is very frustrating at times as it has happened to me countless times. When you need your internet most it becomes slow.However to solve your problems,i have found out certain tricks and tips to make your wifi speed faster.
First of all you should have a good ISP(internet service provider),your net should be stable at all times,it could be that its not the wifi’s fault at all it could be you do not have a stable net connection.You should call your internet service provider and let him know about the problem you are facing.
Now if there is not a problem from the service provider’s side then you should consider the following measures and see if it works for you:
To pick a good spot for your wifi router is the most important thing which most people do not do as of i know. You should put your wifi router as high as possible to get a better signal of the radio waves.
Make sure that your wifi router is not surrounded my metals and concrete.It becomes a lot difficult to get a good signal when it is surrounded by metals and concrete.
Distance to Router:
Distance is also a very important thing that you should keep in mind,when using the wifi. The signal is better when you are closer to the router and becomes worse as you move away from it.
If you want to use your wifi everywhere in your house then you should place the wifi in the middle of your house so there is 360* coverage.
Also remember to put the wifi router at an elevated place to get a better signal of the radio waves.
If you are living in a big house and the wifi signals does not reach to certain areas of the house you can get a wifi extender which will connect to the main router and will reflect the signals and provides a much better coverage.
You probably must have not noticed but there are wireless signals going around your house everyday which can effect the wifi speed.
For example, microwaves can also can affect the wifi signal, because microwaves operate at 2.45 frequency which is close to the frequency of the wifi router which operates at 2.40
Wifi’s have become so common that every household has their own wifi router, which can cause the channel to overlap which in turn is slowing your speed by a huge margin.
It is Generally a problem now in the modern times as there are so many wifi routers in one building.
Check your own PC if there has been a large file being downloaded it is probably because of that the wifi speed is slow. so check that no won in your house is using your wifi to download a big file which is slowing down your wifi speed.
