WiFi problems?

WiFi technology, although commonly used, has many design limitations.

If you are experiencing WiFi problems then the problem could be caused by the configuration of your WiFi equipment, the quality of the equipment, or by external factors which need to be mitigated.

Even if you have broadband Internet (Fibre/ADSL/VDSL/Satellite), your WiFi could be causing your Internet access speed to appear slow.

Common WiFi problems

– slow WiFi on all devices
– WiFi slow on one computer only
– WiFi not connecting
– WiFi disconnects randomly or frequently
– WiFi signal strength drops for no apparent reason
– WiFi keeps disconnecting
– WiFi Direct problems on Windows 10
– WiFi connected but no internet

What causes WiFi problems?

WiFi performance can be affected by a range of factors, and they should all be considered when setting up or troubleshooting your WiFi network:

– overlapping frequencies from other, nearby WiFi networks
– Bluetooth devices
– building wall materials (concrete, metal, lead paint)
– transmit power
– using an inappropriate frequency for your situation (2.4 GHz versus 5 GHz. You may need a site survey to determine which wifi channel is best for your situation)
– WiFi channel width
– outdated firmware on your WiFi router or Access Points
– WiFi adaptor driver on your computer/laptop
– a problem with your computer/laptop/smartphone

What is the best security mode for WiFi?

WiFi installation

WiFi can be an excellent tool for your home or office, but it has limitations and it can create a security risk if it is not installed correctly and maintained regularly.

WiFi security (securing your WiFi)

There are several components to having secure WiFi:

(1) Proper configuration
(2) Regular firmware & driver updates
(3) Controlling who (and what) knows your WiFi password
(4) Using the latest authentication & encryption standards

All of these components can become attack vectors for people with malicious intent so, they are all equally important.
