Do you know why your Wi-Fi is slow?

For all those who use the internet, they will agree with me on one thing that nothing can be more frustrating than a slow Wi-Fi. Well, there is a reason behind everything and Wi-Fi is no different.

Have you ever tried to find out what causes your Wi-Fi to slow down? Internet speed issues can be difficult to diagnose. Check out some of the common reasons what makes your Wi-Fi slow.

Router positioning

Most people made this mistake that they assume that position doesn’t matter with Wi-Fi.  But, the truth is that if you leave your router behind some object or on the ground, your Wi-Fi signal will suffer. Therefore, it is always advised to place it as higher as possible.  By doing this, you will get increased range.

Keep one thing mind;  avoid placing the router in basement as  these areas area  are enclosed by large amount of concrete, which  lead to reduced performance.

Wireless interference

There are many wireless signals passing through home that you barely notice. Make sure that your Wi-Fi router is placed away from all these signals or waves.  Yes, your router is designed to be on a dissimilar frequency, but things such as the amount of radio noise can be the reason for interference.

Interference by Microwaves

Did your Wi-Fi started to go slow since you have bought a microwave? Yes, it can happen. Well, for those who use old router, things can be worse. The reason behind it is that the microwaves operate at 2.45 GHz frequency, which is extremely close to       Wi-Fi router’s frequency that is 2.4 GHz.

Now you know that what you need to do to make sure that Wi-Fi doesn’t get slowed down due to the above mentioned reasons. Get a fast Internet connection and make life more comfortable!
