Improve Hot Spot Wi-Fi - Tips From AT&T

 

Wi-Fi.pngSome AT&T Hot Spots have the option to adjust settings to improve your Wi-Fi range and band. This can help improve your MiFi experience.

 

Note: Some mobile Hot Spots do not have the option to adjust Wi-Fi Band or Wi-fi Range due to system limitations of the device.

 

Things To Know 

If you are in an apartment or you are close to your Hot Spot, we recommend using the 5GHZ frequency. This frequency provides a strong signal in local areas.  Test different bands and ranges to determine what works best for you.

 

Change the Wi-Fi Band 

  1. Select the Wi-Fi icon
  2. Select Wi-Fi Band
  3. Select either 2.4Ghz or 5GHz

Improve Wi-Fi Range 

  1. Select the Wi-Fi icon
  2. Select Wi-Fi Range.
  3. Select either Long, Medium, or Short. (If you are using your device for your home, long is recommended).

Instruction may vary per device.  For additional support, check out our support center. Some mobile Hot Spots do not have the option to adjust Wi-Fi Band or Wi-fi Range due to system limitations of the device.

 

  1. Go to Device Support Home Page.
  2. Type your device or select via the options listed.
  3. Scroll down and select “Learn How To Use.
  4. In Device Topics select either: 

- Settings then Adjust Wi-Fi Range.

Connectivity then Dual Band Wi-Fi.
