  1. Turn off unused or extra internet-connected devices. If you have multiple phones, tablets, smart TVs, computers, smart home devices and video game consoles sharing your home network, all of that data usage can add up and result in reduced available bandwidth.
  2. Find a better spot for your wireless router. Wireless routers work by sending radio signals outward in all directions. However, as those signals are very high frequency, they have a relatively short range. Additionally, as with all radio signals, they can slow down or get blocked by objects in their path, degrading the quality of the signal and reducing your WiFi internet speeds. Therefore, you should move your router to a more open position to enhance your connection.
  3. Reboot your router. A wireless router is also a small computer. It holds memory and background processes and caches information. It can benefit from the occasional reset to get things going just right again. After a reset, it will reconnect to various data channels often resulting in landing you a more efficient less crowded channel.
  4. Check to see if you have unwanted guests using your WiFi. A simple solution to this, is to change your WiFi password. This will force any device to require a reconnect with the new password. It may be tedious as you’ll have to reconnect all of your connected devices again, but it may be worth it if you have an unwanted guest using up your bandwidth.
  5. Use a wired connection. You can connect an Ethernet cord directly to an available port on your wireless router. Not only will you experience faster speeds through the wired Ethernet connection, but you can save bandwidth in your home WiFi network for other devices.
  6. Purchase a new computer or router. Old equipment could be the direct cause of your slow internet connection. Most new devices will support older wireless standards, but the older equipment will not work with a standard that did not exist when they were manufactured.
  7. Check your task manager and turn off unwanted background processes. Some background applications may be pulling down data on your computer.
  8. Find a software solution. There is a chance that software, not hardware is at the heart of your internet problems. Software issues can range from old firmware running on your router to viruses infecting your computer. You may want to try the following software fixes: Check your router for firmware updates, update your web browser, clear your web browser cache and run an antivirus.
  9. Upgrade your service package. You may want to upgrade your internet package, so that you can experience more bandwidth.
