We recommend customers to practice these tips in order to improve the speed via wireless  connectivity:

 

1.  HEAT - Place your wireless router away from hot areas as heat will affect the router performance and browsing experience. 

a.    Wireless router should be placed in an open area to allow heat ventilation.

b.    Place the broadband equipment next to each other instead of stacking it up to reduce the risk of overheating.

 

2.  DISTANCE – Wireless router has distance limitations when it comes to signal range. As distance increases, the signal becomes weaker.
