Wi-Fi network of poor quality: what is the reason?

Do you have a poor connection with your Wi-Fi network at home or in the office? Your environment often influences the quality of your Wi-Fi. There are various ways of improving the connection with your Wi-Fi network.

  • Put your modem in a high place, and preferably in an open space
    The Wi-Fi signal is sensitive to barriers such as doors or walls.
  • Install your modem near your devie
    Also, if you want to surf on your mobile, tablet or computer, it is best to do so as close to your modem as possible because the strength of the Wi-Fi signal decreases with distance.
  • Change the frequency of your modem
    Some devices in your home (such as your microwave oven) emit radio waves, just like your modem. If these devices use the same frequency as your modem, this can result in disruptions. In that case, change the Wi-Fi channel of your modem.

Don't forget to test the quality of the Wi-Fi network with another device: if you have a good connection on your mobile but a bad connection on your tablet, it is because of the the Wi-Fi receptor of your tablet. If this does not change a thing, you can buy a Wi-Fi extender CPL adapter. This device, also known as Wi-Fi extender, will improve the quality of your Wi-Fi network.
