Yes, this is a first world problem but let’s be honest, is there anything more annoying than slow wifi? Why can’t you just make your home wifi faster? Having strong fast wifi is a must no matter what you are using it for, shopping, work, streaming movies, video games, you name it.

And then there are the kids… Always watching videos, playing games, and taking up your wifi’s bandwidth. It can seem like an eternity and a half waiting for a single google search to load results on slow wifi. Use these few tricks and a wifi range extender to make your home wifi lightning fast!

Start by making sure your router is in the best location. If you use the wifi mainly on one side of your house and your router is on the opposite side, move that router closer! Yes, wifi signals can move through walls easily.  However, it cannot move through water and household appliances, especially microwaves.

Next, it’s a surprise most wifi users, which is all of us, didn’t realize that just like a TV your wifi can run on different channels. There are usually between 1 and 11 channels you wifi can run on, try changing the channel and seeing if it helps improve the signal.

And Finally, Turbocharge your wifi with a wifi booster. Simply use a wifi booster to double the speed and range of your wifi signal. The more technical term is Range Extender.

Plug a range extender in between your router and where you are using the wifi to boost and extend the range of your signal to reach the far corners of your home. That’s it, just plug n’ play, you are welcome!
