Slow Wi-Fi / Internet - Tips From AT&T To Improve Your Speeds!
Has your WI-FI or internet been going in and out? Are you experiencing slow speeds? Are you losing service? We have some helpful tips that should improve your wireless experience.
Bad Modem Environment Can Cause:
- Slow wired and wireless speeds.
- Loss of service
- Modem resets
- Modem Failure
Electronics, speakers, surge protectors, and location of the modem can impact speeds and service. Speakers are a major source of interference because of the magnet inside. If your environment resembles the image to the left, there is a good chance your services are being affected. Surge protectors can also cause resets. Plugging the modem into a wall outlet can resolve this.
Proper Modem Environment Can:
- Improve Wireless Speeds
- Improve Wi-Fi signal distance
- Prevent drops of service
- Keeping the modem free and clear of electronics
- Moving the modem off the floor and placing it on a hard surface
- Plugging U-verse equipment into a wall outlet
- Having the modem out in the open for proper air circulation
