If your WiFi at home is really slow all of a sudden, then there’s a problem somewhere that you can most likely fix yourself. Here’s how to fix slow WiFi.
We discussed earlier how you can deal with a slow WiFi connection that you can’t exactly fix, but what if your internet at home is experiencing performance problems? You can usually fix that since you have access to the router.
There are many reasons why your internet connection might be slow. Perhaps another user in the house is streaming Netflix or your router is clogged up a bit and just needs a simple reboot. There’s even the chance that your internet service provider could be experiencing [...]
If you find yourself connected to a slow WiFi connection, here’s what you can do to make the most of it.
There’s nothing worse than connecting to a hotel’s WiFi or another WiFi network in your area only to discover that it’s slow as molasses. Websites load slowly, mobile games lag or just don’t connect at all, and streaming any kind of media is out of the question completely.
Everyone has most likely experienced a slow WiFi connection at one point or another, especially at a hotel, where you might get free WiFi, but it’s probably not that great in the first place unless it’s a really nice hotel where they actually care about [...]

Whether you’re moving into a new place and setting up your WiFi, or you switched internet service providers, here are some things that you need to do when you’re setting up your home WiFi network.
Too many times, your internet service provider will come in, set up your internet, and then leave. Usually the router they set up has a unique password already set up so that it’s secure right out of the box, but everything else is set with default settings, which always aren’t optimal.
For instance, you’ll want to change the WiFi password, as well as the type of protection used to secure the WiFi network. More often than not, routers default to [...]
If you have slow internet, the easiest thing to do would be to pay more per month for a faster connection, but if you don’t want to fork out more money, there are ways that you can speed up your internet for free.
Unfortunately, you can’t literally speed up your internet for free, as a faster Mbps connection would simply just cost you more, but there are ways that you can optimize your internet connection in order to squeeze out every last megabit without spending a dime.
The internet in most households is most likely not performing up to its full potential, and that could be because of many different factors, whether the router is crappy, the WiFi needs [...]
When we turn on a faucet or a light switch we expect water to flow or the lights to come on. When we turn up the thermostat in the winter we expect things to warm up a bit. Back in the day of landlines when we picked up a telephone we expected a dial tone. We paid the monthly bills and we got what we paid for. These utility services were and still are reliable.

Our expectations are so conditioned to utilities working that they have transcended being an expectation to a fact of life. There’s even a clever mind game [...]
