- Slow connection
Even though greater speeds are now available in most homes throughout the world, wireless (and even landline) networks can get congested. If your Internet connection is still operational but your download and upload speeds are slower than expected, there is typically a logical explanation that can be addressed. The most obvious cause of sluggish Wi-Fi speeds is being too far away from the router. The connection and speed will become less dependable as you get further away from the router. As an instance, if you are studying online in the farthest room and the router is in the living room, then you might study in a room that is closest to the router.
Simply get a little closer to solve this. If the router is in a different room, try going into the room where the router is and seeing if it solves the problem. If this is a recurring problem, try placing your router higher (on a shelf), away from any potentially interfering equipment, and in a central area in your home.
- Random Drop Outs
You’re on the Internet when all of a sudden no one can connect, but then, hey presto, it’s back! If this is the case, look for a pattern; does it disappear when a particular piece of equipment is used? When the WiFi goes down, does a specific vehicle pass? This is a problem with older microwaves, and it also affects some routers, especially if you have an old microwave!
Could it be your next-door neighbours? Is it supposed to stop about the time they get home from work? Their router may be interfering with your signal; if so, consider adjusting the channel as suggested previously. If it doesn’t solve the problem, attempt a factory reset and firmware upgrade; this truly works!
- There is no Wi-Fi at all
Although your network cannot be detected, the lights on your router are blinking. Is it possible that your router has reset itself? Has your list of wifi networks suddenly expanded to include a new network? Rename the WiFi SSID (Service Set IDentifier) on your router’s admin page, then reset the password and try to connect again. If this happens regularly, your router could be infected with a virus or be failing.
- You connect to the Wi-Fi, but there is no connection to the internet
It truly works if you turn off your gadget, unhook the power cord, and wait 30 seconds before plugging it back in and turning it back on. If it doesn’t work, turn off your router and repeat the procedure.
- Nothing is capable of connecting to WiFi
No one in your house or office may use the WiFi to access the internet. Do you have a red light for your broadband or Internet connection? Check the lights on your router. If you have a red light, contact your Internet service provider; if they are busy and there is a significant wait, it could be a widespread problem. If that isn’t the case, you may need to purchase a new router from TM Unifi in Malaysia.
