WIFI, loud and clear
In today’s world every home is equipped with high speed internet access, and nothing is worse than a bad wifi connection. If you are using wifi for work, gaming or just pleasure a good router and connection is key. Here are 4 helpful tips when getting the most out of your wifi.
- Get the most up to date technology. The main thing you need to know: Wireless A, B, and G are old and slow, and wireless N (and the even newer wireless AC) will give you the fastest speeds around. Note that you’ll need both a wireless N router and a wireless N card in your computer if you want the full speed boost.
- Router Placement is Very Important. If you want the best signal, you’ll need it out in the open, free of any walls and obstructions. Point the antennas perpendicularly, and elevate the router if you can.
- Use a range extender, they are very in expensive and can add much needed distance to your router.
- Password and Security aren’t only needed for safety but speed as well. Make sure other aren’t using your network which would also slow you down quite a bit.
