Wi-Fi Range issues

Internal Wi-fi coverage issues can be caused by various issues such as thick walls, hollow core, range on routers, etc
We recommend the award range of Fritz devices to the best Wi-Fi Experience, for more information on their range extenders

Here are some tips on getting the most from your Wi-Fi

Check who or what is using it…

Turn off deceives that that are not in use but are connected to the Wi-fi. Check for dormant devices like printers, radios, etc that may be connected to the wi-fi

Cable connection

Use a direct cable from your router to devices such as smart TV’s, Xbox, PS4, PC’s, TV Box to get the optimum speed capacity.

Wi-Fi password

Set a Wi-Fi password on your router on to deter unwanted users.

Avoid interference

Keep the router away from metal devices like fridges and microwaves. Also signals from baby monitors, cordless phones may cause issues.

Location

Place your router centrally and in the area that you plan to use the connection the most. Hallow-core or thick walls may impact on it, so extenders or powerlines may be needed.

Older devices

Older technology may take longer to communicate with your wi-fi signal so internet may be slower on these devices. Turn off when not in use. Use of old routers may also impact speeds.
