2. Turn your router and modem off and on. Prolonged use of equipment often leads to slowness, especially if you haven’t turned them on and off for a long period of time.
3. Move your router to a better location. Wi-Fi can travel only so far, and its signals can get interrupted or blocked by walls, floors ceilings, furniture, appliances, and basically any large physical object. They can also get interrupted by radio waves from other devices, including cordless phones, baby monitors, microwaves, and Bluetooth speakers.
4. Adjust your Router’s antenna. Many routers have internal antennas—meaning that they’re built into the body of the device and you can’t adjust them. If that’s the case for you, skip this step. But if you do have adjustable antennas on your router, try reconfiguring them. Router antennas are usually omnidirectional, which means they send out signals in all directions perpendicular to the antenna. For example, a vertical antenna sends out Wi-Fi signals horizontally, and vice versa. So if you need to stretch your Wi-Fi signals to multiple floors, adjusting an antenna to sit horizontally to spread Wi-Fi signals up and down could help.
5. Using the right frequency band. Modern routers work primarily on two radio frequency bands: 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz. The band you use for your connections can affect your speeds and the quality of your connections at different distances from your router. The 2.4 GHz band has been used for Wi-Fi since the beginning, but it’s also used for a ton of other wireless communications, so the airwaves in this frequency can be a little crowded. This band also has slower max speeds than 5 GHz, but its range is better.
6. Prune unnecessary connections. If you’re running low on bandwidth, you should prioritize your connections. Everything connected to your network should be essential.
7. Update your router’s firmware. Since you’ve already logged in to your router’s interface to check your Wi-Fi channel from step six, you might as well check to see if there are any available firmware updates. Updating your router keeps it as secure as possible and up to date with the latest software fixes for known problems
8. Use a wired connection. If your notebook /laptop computer has an Ethernet
