Want faster Wi-Fi connection? Here are some tips.

Here are some quick facts to guide you to peak performance.

Many factors affect your Wi-Fi

The location makes a difference:

  • Distance from the Wi-Fi Router or Extender

  • Thick walls or routers and devices on different floors

Other devices can affect your signal too:

  • Cordless phones, baby monitors & microwaves

  • Devices using Bluetooth

  • Other Wi-Fi networks near your home

Also, note that other Wi-Fi networks near your home can impact your Wi-Fi signal and speed.

Network speed and Wi-Fi Speed

The speed you get on hardwired computers is different than the speed of your Wi-Fi. Your hardwired computer is connected directly to your network. The Wi-Fi signal travels through the air to reach your devices. That’s why it’s affected by walls and other signals. Go to and take your network for a test run! The speed test will measure the speed delivered to the specific device you are using for the test. We recommend running this speed test from a computer that is wired to the router. Using a wireless device will not give you an accurate measure of the speed as it will test the speed of your home Wi-Fi rather than the speed of the network connection.

Newer devices perform better

The older your mobile device, the more likely you’ll have older Wi-Fi technology that will result in slower Wi-Fi speed results. Upgrade your device or go to a computer shop and see if they can upgrade the wireless card in your laptop.
