Tips to Increase Wi-Fi Signal when Working from Home


Dead spots and slow internet can be a problem, especially if you are working from home. If you feel like your WiFi has gotten slow or sluggish, there are several ways you can use to test your internet. On the other hand, if the only way you can get decent reception is by standing next your wireless router, these simple tips can help get the best use out of your network.

Update Your Router

First, it’s a good idea to make sure your router is up to date. Router manufacturers are always improving software for you to update.

Check Your Wired Internet Connection

Make sure your internet is performing properly. Find an Ethernet cable and plug your computer directly into your modem. If your laptop doesn’t have an Ethernet port, you may need a USB to Ethernet adapter.

WiFi Intruders

If your network has a weak or no password at all, you could have an unwelcome guest or two tagging along on your network. You should set your WiFi up with a strong, secure password.
