Make sure your router is within a sensible range to your device, and move it away from any obstructions that could be weakening signal strength (walls, cupboards, etc.) – this can make a massive
difference! When using WiFi, be wary of anything that could be blocking or tampering with your wireless signal. Microwaves for instance
, can contribute to a slowdown in speed.
The latest weapon in the home users arsenal is mesh networks – these small devices often plug directly into a power outlet and help improve signal across your home. They also let you control devices. At the moment, Amazon and Currys are doing a 3 box mesh network extender for only £60
– this even gets the internet into my garden! Additional options would be power line adapters, which use your existing electricity wiring to help provide internet across your home, but these are less cost effective than mesh network options.
