You decided to spend your money on purchasing a new router, you also bought a few new devices to help you make use of the wireless technology, only to end up facing another disappointment; the speed you are getting isn’t what you were promised, and you’re now starting to wonder if something is wrong with your devices, or if the wireless internet technology is a hoax. It happens to everybody all the time, so the first step you should take is to allay your fears. The problem isn’t with the wireless network, and neither is it with your devices. You can easily take some of the steps below to help make your wireless internet faster.
Restart Your Computer and Your Wireless Devices
I’ve experienced some serious situations in which my wireless network was not cooperating and there was virtually nothing I could do to get it to work. After reading up a lot of articles on troubleshooting a wireless network I discovered that the real solution was to restart.
You wouldn’t even believe it, but, sometimes, the only solution to your slow wireless internet problems is to restart your computer and all your wireless devices. Depending on your device, you might need to give it a hard reset to be able to get things to work, so make sure you don’t jump to conclusions until you’ve done that.
Relocate Your Computer and Router
Distance can also mean a lot of difference when it comes to the wireless internet speed you are getting. If it were a wired internet connection the story would have been different, but when it comes to the wireless internet we need to consider all possibilities.
You can improve the speed of your wireless internet by moving your computer a few steps closer to your router. And, sometimes, the thing that needs a moving is your router; so make sure you don’t hesitate to move anything you think needs to be moved to help you ensure a better wireless experience.
Watch Out for Interference and take Steps to Prevent It
Interference can also be a major killer to the quality of your wireless signals so you should make sure you don’t take it lightly. Try to look around you for devices that might be preventing the quality of your signals, and make sure you move them away from your vicinity, or relocate your devices to a better place.
