• TOP 10 LIST: *SPOILERS*
1) RESTART THE ROUTER
All you have to do is turn off the router for 30 seconds and turn it back on. Once it's restarted (wait at least 1min), * try using it again.
2) NO BANDWIDTH HEAVY CONTENT
Make sure that no one uses the WiFi network for bandwidth heavy content because it will affect the internet speed of the other devices.
3) DISABLE BACKGROUND PROGRAMS
Press Ctrl + alt + delete to open Task Manager or right click on the task bar and select task manager. Move to the “Processes” tab. Here, both Windows and third-party software processes are listed. Now, look for any third-party applications that you didn’t start and click on “End Process” or "End Task" after selecting it.
4) CHANGE YOUR DEVICE AND ROUTERS LOCATION
If you want to send the signals everywhere in the house, then it is best to place it at a central location and higher point. Wi-Fi signals have a hard time penetrating metals, cement or concrete so if you are behind a wall with such material in it, the Wi-Fi signals will be affected. The further you are the weaker the signals will get. Try to stay relatively close if you can or consider getting an ethernet cable.
5) CHANGE THE WIFI CHANNEL
WifiInfoView is a great tool that is simple and free. When you launch the program, it will show all Wi-Fi channels and how much they are crowded. Here select the one that is the least crowded and you are good to go.
6) DISABLE WINDOWS NETWORK ADAPTER POWER SAVER
Windows can decrease power to the network adapter to save power while sacrificing Internet performance. To set it to maximum, go to Control Panel from the start menu and click on “System and Security”.
Then, click on “Power Options” and then click on “change plan settings” next to your selected plan.
In the next screen, click on “Change advanced power settings” and Power Options should open up. Here, click on “Wireless Adapter Settings” and set it to “Maximum Performance”.
7) FIX / UPDATE NETWORK DRIVERS
Sometimes corrupt network drivers can lead to slow Internet speed on that specific PC. To find and fix network drivers, press Window (key)+R to open Run dialog and enter “devmgmt.msc”. This will open device manager, here double-click on “Network adapters” and see if they are fine. A driver with a yellow triangle and an exclamation mark shows there is a problem with it. If you find any, right click on it and then click on “Update driver software”. Then, follow the wizard to update the software and it should get fixed.
8) RESET YOUR ROUTER TO FACTORY SETTINGS
If everything fails, you can also completely reset your router to factory settings that should revert any wrong changes that may be affecting the WiFi.
To reset the router, you will find a tiny reset button inside a hole right on your router (mostly at the back side). You can use a paper clip to press this button. Press and hold this button for 10-15 seconds and your router should restart. Once done, you will have to make all the changes again, and set up a new Wi-Fi password.
9) DISABLE ANY VPNS
If you use a VPN to browse anonymously then you should know that all VPNs slow down Internet speed to some extent. You will have to stop using a VPN service or upgrade your Internet speed package to get better speed.
10) CONTACT YOUR ISP (INTERNET SERVICE PROVIDER)
If nothing is working out for you, then you should contact your ISP and discuss the problem. It could be a problem on their end and they may be able to provide the right instructions to solve your issue. You may get some sort of compensation bonus if you ask for it and your ISP is caring enough.
