Many offices and individuals rely on Wi-Fi to get jobs done or to surf the internet. A slow or snail-like Wi-Fi will no doubt delay your work and it can be very frustrating. This said, your Wi-Fi may not improve soon due to the following reasons discussed by Jumia Travel.
There are devices interfering with your Wi-Fi
Wi-Fi is very sensitive to its environment. If you have devices that could interfere with your network, you should either remove them or switch them off. For example, Bluetooth devices and microwave can affect the strength of your signal.
Poor location of router
The location of your Wi-Fi router also has a role to play in slowing your Wi-Fi network. Your router should not be far away from whatever device you are using to surf the internet. The closer the devices the better the reception. This may not be the case. Here, you may have to upgrade your router.
You connect to the wrong Wi-Fi
There are so many wireless networks on your phone or laptop that you don’t know the one to connect to. This may be because they have the same names. So, you just decided to connect your device with any available one. Unknown to you, the one you connected to was very slow. If you don’t want to be in this situation, you should find out from colleagues the fastest wireless network.
You overload Router
If so many people are connected to your router, it can affect the speed of your network. This is because the router can not distribute the signal equally to the different users.
You installed incompatible software
This usually happens when you update or upgrade your Wi-Fi router but you forget to do same for your computer. So, whenever you update your router, you should also uninstall the one in your device. This is to ensure that the software is compatible and up-to-date.
