8 Ways to Improve Your Home’s Wifi Signal

Is your wifi signal not strong enough? Is it too slow to load a page? These are just some of the many problems that people have with their home’s wifi. For those who want to get more out of their wifi experience, this blog post is for you! Here are 10 simple and effective ways to improve your home’s Wifi signal.

  • Try to move your router closer to the center of your home. It should be at least three feet away from any other electronic device, including TV and speakers. The best place is somewhere high up that’s close to where most people will use it.


  • Wifi extenders can also be used to help Wifi coverage in places where it might not be strong enough.


  • There are also things you can do on your computer if the Wifi signal is getting interrupted by something else or people are complaining about how slow their connection is.


  • Another option to improve your wifi signal  is to call the Internet service provider company and ask for a Wifi booster or pod.


  • Check your router or modem for Wifi interference and see if the Wifi signal is being disrupted by wireless devices.


  • Another option is to get a better router instead of using the one that the internet company gave you. Wifi routers are pretty easy to set up, but it is worth it to take a few hours and figure out how to get your router optimized for Wifi coverage in your home.


  • If you are using the internet in a basement or in a detached building, you will want to get Wifi boosters or Wifi extenders. Wifi signals can only travel so far, and even in a home with high-speed internet the signal is not always consistent throughout your house. A wifi booster is basically an amplifier that takes one Wifi router’s signal and makes it stronger for long distances. 


  • If you have a large number of devices connected, it is important that your Wifi network isn’t too crowded. Wifi routers can only handle so much traffic before they start slowing down or even stop working altogether. Many modems have caps on the number of devices that can connect at the same time.

If you’ve tried all of these 8 tips and still not found the wifi signal improvement that you desire, consider switching Internet providers.
