Securing Your WiFi Network

How to Optimize Your WiFi at Home

So the whole family wants to go online. Are you sure you got the right home broadband plan to accommodate everybody? With the internet  playing a major role in our life, not only is it necessary to have a home broadband connection that’s fast and reliable, but one that really answers our needs.

Globe at Home offers tips on how to make the most out of your home broadband and WiFi experience for the whole family:



Your WiFi experience depends largely on how close you are to the router. The farther you are from the router, the weaker your connection is. An optimal location to place your router is an open space or area. It shouldn’t be on the floor or near any body of water, whether an aquarium or water container, and you definitely shouldn’t cover it.



For the same reason you shouldn’t cover your router, you should also be mindful of any obstructions. Concrete walls (especially thicker ones!), mirrors and doors may weaken your WiFi signal. So don’t be surprised if you’re having trouble getting WiFi while you’re in the bedroom and your router is in the living room.



Remember that signals that come from different appliances can interfere with each other, which means that things like microwave ovens may cause interference to your WiFi. So make sure to keep your router away from your microwave!


A secure network

Unauthorized users contribute to a weak WiFi connection. Make sure that only those who are authorized are connected by securing your network with a strong password. Avoid names, birthdays, and phone numbers, and go for a mix of letters, numbers, and symbols. Also, don’t share your password with anyone.


Number of users and connected devices

Remember that everyone shares a specific amount of bandwidth, which means that WiFi is slower when more people and devices are connected, whether or not the connection is actually being used.

WiFi extenders

Enhance your WiFi reach with a WiFi extender to ensure strong and reliable signals, even with walls and distance.
