WiFi and Broadband problems

 

What can I do to improve my Internet?

  • Check for any software updates for operating systems and apps.
  • Make sure your antivirus software is up to date, if not, it can slow things down
  • Clear your device’s cookies and cache - Troubleshooting checklist
  • Reset your browser - Troubleshooting checklist
  • Close any programs/devices you’re not using as they may be slowing it down
  • Turn off any older devices – they can reduce your WiFi speed and this might help

What else can I do to improve my WiFi signal?

  • It never hurts to try turning the router off and on again after 60 seconds.
  • Try to keep your router as free from obstructions as possible. i.e not behind the TV..
  • You could try using a wireless booster. This will boost the wireless signal within your property and are available online and in all good computer shops.
  • You can also try a higher spec router i.e 5Ghz / Dual band. We now supply/sell these as standard but you can buy them from reputable computer shops too.

Other factors inside your house which can affect your speed include:

  • The distance, type and quality of the connection between your router and your devices (particularly true for WiFi connections)
  • Quality of your phone line inside your house (old wiring and extension cables for example)
  • Other devices competing for bandwidth such as cordless phones, baby monitors, oil Master etc.
  • The age of your equipment, router or filters.
  • Obstructions to the router if it’s behind a TV, near a fish tank, on the carpet.
