Having trouble getting signal from your wi-fi router?

There are lots of factors that can affect signal loss with your connection. And it’s the most frustrating to experience while you’re browsing. The most common misconception practice is placing it in the wrong area. Distance is the most obvious problem in relating to loss of signal. But still there are lot to consider. We’re here to help!

Here are some tips that can boost your Wi-Fi signal

  1. Firmware Update – Some routers just need an update. Newer routers came in with an update button you can press to automatically update the firmware. Older ones need a flash drive to be updated that can be downloaded to the manufactures website. Updating gives you performance boost, better features, and security.
  2. Optimize router placement – one of the reason why gamers tend to lag in their playing times is because of packet loss due to the wrong placement of the router. Try to place yours in the center of your home that can be reach by all devices.
  3. QoS – Quality of service – You can, for example, specify which applications and services get priority bandwidth, and set downloaders as lower priority at certain times of the day.
  4. Wi-fi extenders – if you have a big home and it’s very hard for your devices to reach the signal of your router, consider purchasing an extender. They can help in maximizing your signal area and boost reliability.
  5. Remove other Interference – Other routers aren’t the only thing that can cause interference. Cordless phones, microwaves, and other appliances can muck with your signal as well.
