Updated Router
You may experience a weak or slowing signal when you are using an older router. You might need to look into purchasing a newer one to get the strongest signal. If you still have issues with performance in certain areas of the home that are not near the router, get a booster to enhance the strength and give a more consistent signal throughout the home.
Always check for updated drivers and keep your system running smoothly. Many times a weak signal is due to outdated drivers and with a simple visit to the manufacturer’s page you can begin enjoying a faster, more reliable internet.
If you have an open connection then anyone who is in the area can use your bandwidth. When you set up your wireless network be sure to create a password to protect those around you from slowing you down. If you live in an apartment building and have an open connection, everyone in the building can ping off your signal and they save on internet bills and you lose on signal strength.
If you have issues that cannot be resolved with the above tips you might need to replace your Wi-Fi card.
