Tip # 1, to enhance your real speed, disconnect or turn off devices that are not being utilized. Take for circumstances the Xbox360. If you child leaves it on, it still speaks to the Microsoft Live server and if your child is logged in, it continually queries the server to see if any of his friends are playing. While things like this do not eat up a great deal of your bandwidth, having numerous devices doing this can make a noticeable huge difference.
Now let’s go over the language of your wireless network:
The cordless router can speak several different “languages” which are referred to as procedures. Today’s cordless routers speak either “G” or “N” procedure. The “G” protocol is the oldest one at a bit over ten years old. It was great in its day and gave us the very best of both worlds from the existing protocols of the time (A and B). Regretfully it truly doesn’t give us great speed for today’s requiring applications like YouTube video. The speed of the “G” method is, at finest, 54Mbps which has to do with half the speed of your wired connection. The most recent method “N” offers us at least double that speed and many times much more. The “N” procedure is likewise in reverse suitable with “G” so if you have a laptop computer running “G” you can still use a cordless router running “N”. (In other words, if you have a “G” laptop, you do NOT have to have a “G” cordless router.).
Tip # 2, to get a more powerful signal which can likewise mean more speed, change your house wireless router to a new one with the “N” method. The better range will certainly assist your “G” devices and any “N” gadgets you have will like the brand-new greater speeds they can get. The XBox360 ships with the “N” procedure and the majority of Roku boxes are readily available in the “N” method variation.
Let’s talk about signal strength:.
The means wireless works, the weaker your cordless signal, the slower your information speed. Standing best next to the wireless router, you may get a max speed of 54Mbps running the “G” protocol however if you move to the other side of the residence and you may only get 11 Mbps.
Tip # 3, if you move the device better to the wireless router, or the cordless router closer to the device, you must get enhanced speed. Occasionally this may not possible (depending upon the design of your house and the place where your cable wire enters your house) but there is an option that can be handy: use aluminum foil to redirect the unused part of the signal towards your device. You can discover a video on how to do this at my wireless page in the link below.
The speed of the “G” procedure is, at best, 54Mbps and that is about half the speed of your wired connection. Pointer # 2, to get a more powerful signal which can also mean more speed, change your home wireless router to a brand-new one with the “N” protocol. The way cordless works, the weak your cordless signal, the slower your information speed. Tip # 3, if you move the gadget better to the wireless router, or the wireless router better to the device, you should get enhanced speed.
