Poor Wi-Fi - Solutions for Your Internet Experience
Modem Location & Placement
Did you know modem location can affect your Wi-Fi signal? If you didn't now you do. The images below show the difference between a poor Wi-Fi signal and a good Wi-Fi signal
- Place the modem in a centralized location in your home.
- Keep electronics away from the modem.
- Place the modem on an elevated surface, off the ground.
This will improve Wi-Fi coverage if location is an issue.
Note: Metal frames, thick walls, and the construction of the home can impact the Wi-Fi signal. Adjusting the channel can improve this in some instances. Using a wired connection is recommended. Purchasing a Wi-Fi extender may improve your experience.
