How to get the fastest, farthest reaching and most reliable Wi-Fi for your home
August 3, 2023
From upgrading your router to removing old devices, we’ve got you covered. Here are four tips on how to improve the speed and coverage of your Wi-Fi network at home.
- Upgrade your old router to the GigaSpire BLAST: The GigaSpire Blast (that comes with South Slope Managed Wi-Fi) has the latest Wi-Fi standard, Wi-Fi 6, which provides faster speeds, better coverage, and improved reliability compared to older Wi-Fi standards. By upgrading to a GigaSpire Blast, you can enjoy better Wi-Fi performance and support for more devices.
- Position your router in a central location: To ensure optimal Wi-Fi coverage throughout your home, it’s best to position your router in a central location, away from walls and other obstructions. This will help to minimize signal interference and ensure that your devices can connect to the Wi-Fi network with ease. Don’t worry, our Managed Wi-Fi service comes with whole-home optimization and installation. Our expert Wi-Fi technicians will ensure your system is set up to deliver the best experience, so you don’t have to.
- Use wired connections for devices that require a stable connection: This one may seem counterintuitive, but if you have devices that require a stable and consistent internet connection, such as gaming consoles or desktop computers, it’s best to use a wired connection instead of Wi-Fi. This will help to minimize latency and ensure a stable connection.
- Remove old devices from your network: Older devices that are no longer in use or are rarely used can slow down your Wi-Fi network. You can remove these devices from your network using the South Slope Wi-Fi app to free up bandwidth and improve Wi-Fi performance for your other devices.
