What Can I Do To Speed Up Wi-Fi Speed

Sometimes, all that is required is simply to reboot the system. Overuse of the Wi-Fi system over a period will affect its connectivity and would cause a slow Wi-Fi connection. So performing the modem and the router can be under par because it needs a reboot. We can solve the common problems listed above with simple measures. The proximity of routers and modems can offer a minor boost in speed of wireless connection.

Wi-Fi Connection Ranges

Use less broadband demanding devices like internet connect water pitchers for 2.4 Ghz Wi-Fi channels. Higher 5.0 Ghz channels usually traffic most users and larger devices like printers, TV’s, and computers.

Turning off any unused internet enabled devices that can impair the connection, or situate them at a considerable distance from the Wi-Fi system.

A lot of times, the device in question might not handle the speed of the routers as it might not advance them. In these cases, one can upgrade or replace the device.

How to Keep My Home Internet Network Secure?

When you get your devices are all connected to a Wi-Fi network, you’ll want to ensure that this internet connection is secure and not filled with bad actors. Taking these simple steps helps protect your intimate information and reduce cyberattacks.

  1. First, change the default passwords on your modem and router, and choose something more complex than “SkyBlue922,” “password,” or “pizzaforbreakfast.”
  2. You’ll also determine if your router supports guest network. This feature allows visitors to access your Wi-Fi without you having to share access to your major network.
  3. That is to rename your Wi-Fi network so your house is will not be easily targeted. For example, if you live at 922 Port Jefferson Place, you wouldn’t name it 933 Pine Place. Or, if you’re the Smiths , don’t name it “Smith-Internet-Network”. Don’t make it easy for an individual who is targeting you to identify the exact network you are connected with..

Every day, Businesses are losing tremendous amounts of data purely because ‘backing up’ is stuck at the bottom of their to-do list.

I cannot overemphasize the importance of encrypting data, whatever the size of the business in question, it is important to protect sensitive information to uphold its welfare.

Computer Hacker

Not Safe For Work Computer Activities


Anti-virus Not Updated

While most homes equip anti-virus software within their computers, they rarely have the latest virus and threat definitions. These systems are at risk every minute they spend online, as the anti-virus simply will not pick, identify and contain an unknown threat.

Software Patches

Patches are released on the weekly basis to ensure these security issues are fixed. These fixes are referred to as patches and supposed to automatically be applied, but we often find that isn’t the case–patches didn’t download, get canceled or produce an error.

Data protection

Hard drives (Especially HHD) which store all your memories do eventually fizzle out, but they’re just one part that sends out early warning signs of failure.

Early Hardware Failure Detection

Some of your computer send out alarm bells when they’re soon to give out. Unfortunately, they’re not as flashy as alarm bells (that would be too good), but information in the background that needs to be checked manually.

Routine Tune-ups

No matter how much you cared for your computer, it will eventually slow down. Hard drives become crowded with data, operating systems corrupt and phantoms programs that were uninstalled remain (STILL?).

Do NOT login to personal service, sites, or social media accounts

Do NOT Conduct Side Business or Job Searching

This one is a kind of self explanatory. You don’t want to let your employer find out your switching jobs because of a job search on a work computer. Employers can see your computer activity can be tracked.

How is VoIP More Secure than Regular Phone Lines?

Security and privacy are tremendous concerns these days. Governments and corporations alike are progressively engaged in mining your data, and calls logs are no exception. Almost every day they fill the headlines with the new exploits, vulnerabilities, and scandals associated with data breaches.

Do NOT Store Personal Data

Having at least over one backup is good for best practices. Still, you should’ve avoid making your work computer a personal storage solution, because you can’t be sure that other people at work won’t snoop through your files.

Revoke Remote Access

Granting remote access is both a productivity risk and very much a security risk. However some jobs can't be done without it.

Don’t Log On To Public Wi-Fi

Do NOT log in to divulge sensitive data or use business applications while connected to public Wi-Fi. There are many risks like transferring data on unencrypted network.

Do NOT login to personal service, sites, or social media accounts

Browsers now remember our passwords to sites such as Twitter or your bank is convenient for personal use.

Slow VS Fast Wi-Fi Connections?

  • Number Devices Using The Network: Reduced Wi-Fi speeds are from other connected devices competing for bits of 1 & 0’s. This can impair the connection of your Wi-Fi. An example of being devices such as wireless security cameras and microwaves to mention a few. The reason for the effect of these devices on the Wi-Fi speed is that they function on the same frequency as the wireless connection. Hence, they make up a case of clogged frequencies that reduce the Wi-Fi speed.
  • Location Of Devices To Wi-Fi Router; Routers shoot out radio signals to the ether in donut shaped waves, although people mistaken them for their own type of signal.
  • Amount Of User Connected To Network: Most access points and wireless routers can support up to 250 devices at once. That said, capacity distribution can differ in the more devices on the network, so this does not guarantee each device will have a strong and reliable connection speed.
  • Distances Of Devices To Wi-Fi Router; The farther away you are from your router, the weaker the WiFi signal will be. A common Wi-Fi signal can travel 30m if there is no interference in its path. With the use of Wi-Fi range extenders, Wi-Fi signals can travel up to an incredible distance of about 275km.

Free VS Paid Anti Virus?

  • Ease of Use
  • Support
  • Feature Packed
  • Effectiveness
  • Advertising
  • Protection From Malware & Viruses
