Poor light, uncomfortable seat and poor internet connection can really hamper your productivity. The reason for the slow network may be all day connection from other devices if other members of the house also work from home.
1. Move the router
The Wi-Fi signal is horizontally of better quality than the router. Therefore, it is better to place it on the floor of the house you are working on. Place the router in a central location in the apartment, such as a hallway to send signals evenly. It is better to put it on a shelf than in a cupboard, because the more obstacles like doors and walls, the worse the signal will be.
2. Connect the device to the network cable
With all the advances in wireless technology, connecting devices directly with a network cable can improve the network, because wires are always fast and reliable. On the other hand, your device is no longer a burden on the wireless Wi-Fi network used by other household members.
3. Obtain a signal amplifier
Sometimes the problem is not on the bad internet, but in the weak signal in one part of the house. For a ‘dead zone’ that is far from the router and separated by several walls, it is best to install a Wi-Fi signal amplifier. If there are more problem areas in the apartment that do not pick up the signal, it is best to consider a new router.
4. Use a Wi-Fi access point
Almost every smartphone provides access to a Wi-Fi connection and access point. This will be useful if at some point you run out of internet and have to complete the task. However, pay attention to your internet usage.
5. Choose a package with faster internet
If your household has expanded and you have more devices than a few years ago, you may need a new router and a different Internet package, writes The New York Times.
