How To Speed Up The Internet Range?

Although many factors can affect the internet speed, your WiFi signal might make or break your home WiFi experience.

When Facebook or WhatsApp won’t load upstairs due to a slow internet connection, it is the time to make your WiFi signal stronger than ever.

Use any or all of the tips outlined underneath to boost the WiFi signal strength of your home or office. Let's get started!

Cut Off Bandwidth Leeches

Sometimes improving your existing WiFi speed is as easy as tightening up the security of your home network. Failure to add protection to your home network means opening your internet to hackers. Unknown users slow down your internet speed by taking up the bandwidth. That is the reason why we recommend that all homeowners protect their extenders with a complex password and WPA2 (WiFi-Protected Access-2) security.

Keeping your WiFi network safe from an unknown person is doubly important if your home is automated. Each and every connected device uses bandwidth, and the more unknown or outside devices that use your WiFi network, the less likely your automated home networking devices will get the bandwidth they need. Plus, failure to keep your home network secure may provide strangers with a bit too much control over your coffee maker, air conditioner or automated security system, interference in new extender setup process, etc.

Choose a New WiFi channel

Try switching your extender from a standard 2.4 GHz (Gigahertz) WiFi channel to a 5 GHz (Gigahertz) channel to boost your internet speeds by getting more bandwidth and less traffic. The 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequencies both offer multiple internet transmission channels, but 2.4 GHz only offers 14 channels that overlap. The overlapping of the channel might cause data packets traveling back and forth on neighboring channels to interfere with one another and slows down your connection.

Choosing a channel on the 5 GHz band might minimize the number of other users. However, some extenders are limited to the 2.4 GHz band. If your extender is limited to 2.4 GHz, choose channel 1, 6 or 11. These channels experience the least overlap from other channels, especially if you get your neighbors to use channels 1, 6 or 11 only.

Upgrade to a High-end Extender

The biggest issue holding back your WiFi connection maybe your aging extender. Thankfully, there are numerous advantages to purchasing a brand new extender, so you invest in more than faster and uninterrupted WiFi speeds. A new extender can also give you improved home security features and be compatible with a wider spectrum of devices like your existing router. Not only this but also you can view and adjust your extender's settings by navigating to
