Why Your Wi-Fi is Slow?
Why Your Wi-Fi is Slow? How many times you realize that your Wi-Fi is slowing down, probably it is due to slow internet connection but not necessary all the time, Wi-Fi is very handy device through which you can get connected to internet without any hurdle of wires, you can connect your all devices at a time, Wi-Fi basically works on waves and their frequencies, it can transfer data at frequency of 5GHz which is really fast speed, but the real problem occurs when it turns into a 56Kb Modem I guess (may be faster than 56 Kb), slow Wi-Fi is hard to bear as compare to no Wi-Fi, here let’s have a look on some elements which could slow down your Wi-Fi.
Efficiency of Router
No doubt router’s efficiency effects the speeds of Wi-Fi, old technology made routers are less efficient then new ones. A good router must have at least frequency of 2.4 GHz, but better to have 5 GHz.
Usually we are not concern about router’s position, but believe me it matters, always pick a right place for your router, router should be in front of your devices that you are using while connected to Wi-Fi.
Hurdles in way of Router
Hurdles like walls and doors also effects the performance of Wi-Fi, always place your router in clean and wide space, avoid it placing from concrete walls, basements, and other materials like metals and wood which could block the Radio signals of Wi-Fi.
Yes…! Lightening Bulbs are also responsible for slowing down your Wi- Fi signals, because Lightening Bulbs emits electromagnetic fields and this field interacts with Radio signals.
By emitting electromagnetic fields similar to this in reality, all the forms of lamps can cause disturbance, however the result is close to minimal in most cases. Nevertheless, your router should be kept by you in case just far from electric lights.
Radio Singles Interference
We are always encircle with lots of radio singles, for example cell phone radio tower’s signal, Bluetooth waves, microwaves, and many other, do you know your Microwave Oven can interfere with your Wi-Fi signals? Yes… Because Microwave Ovens are also working on almost same frequency as Wi-Fi router have, so there is huge chances of interference of Wi-Fi and microwave ovens waves.
And now i am revealing one more fact and that is also slowing down Wi-Fi signals, Human body is 60% of water and water can slow down the radio waves, I am not saying that you should away from router or anyone of your household but you should keep your router at the point where is less gathering of people.
