Practical Guide: things you need to know about your Wi-Fi connection

Wi-Fi connections let us enjoy of a wireless internet connection from anywhere in our homes, opening up a whole new world of possibilities for entertainment, but also security and performance.

Sadly, more than one has had an experience with Wi-Fi connections that’s not as good as we’d expect. For example, even if you have a good internet service, you can still experience slow connections, lag, and even have dead zones inside the house, where the signal simply won’t reach.

What can we do when this happens? There is not a single solution for this, since the reasons for a bad Wi-Fi connection can greatly vary. That’s why we’ve created this guide to help you know your Wi-Fi connection better, so you know how to improve its performance.

The first thing to do is set the Wi-Fi router in an adequate place. This device sends the wireless signal that allows us to connect to the Internet, so its location can influence the quality of the connection, especially if we’re using cheap and lower-quality routers, like most Internet Service Providers give you for free. The best thing you can do is setting the router at the center of your home, or the nearest possible place to it.

Next is the router, which definitely is what impacts the quality of the Wi-Fi connection the most. Like we said, a low-quality router will greatly affect the quality of the Wi-Fi connection. Why? It’s simple: if you have a connection of, for example, 50 mbps and the router does not support WPA2 encryption, then we can’t Access the high speeds the 802.11n standard supports, which means we’ll be limited to 20 mbps despite paying for a faster connection. The Wi-Fi N Standard (802.11n) avoids bottlenecks, se we must activate it if our router supports its, but the most powerful is the 802.11ac standard, which D-Link is already offering support for in their new routers, capable of reaching speeds of up to 1,3 Gbps.

Another thing that can negatively impact the speed and quality of our connection, -and, sadly, is really common- are intruders. The Wi-Fi thieves are a sad reality of our days, but luckily there are various ways to deal with them:

  • Change your Wi-Fi password routinely.
  • Use WPA2/AES encryption.
  • Limit the number of assignable IPS.
  • Keep the firmware of the router up to date.
  • Use tools to know who is connected to your router, like Wireless Network Watcher.
  • To sum up, we have to say it’s important to take care of the quality of the router to enjoy a fast, safe and stable wireless Internet connection. Even with a fast service, a cheap router can really leave a lot to be desired.
