How to Improve Your Wi-Fi Network's Performance

A couple of us were talking about WiFi routers the other day in our weekly geeksugar live chat and I realized there are probably a ton of you out there using wireless routers at home and at work. If you're having trouble getting a solid signal it may not be the router's fault. Becky Waring from PC Magazine has put together some great tips on How to improve your WiFi Network's performance. Her tips include:

  • First, make sure you are getting the most out of your current Wi-Fi router: Mount it in a central location in your house, preferably high on a wall; make sure that other 2.4-GHz devices such as cordless phones, baby monitors, wireless audio speakers, Bluetooth gadgets, and microwave ovens are not causing interference; and separate your router from your neighbors' router on the Wi-Fi spectrum. If they are using channel 1, for example, try channel 12 to minimize the chance of cross-channel interference.
