Wireless vs. Wired

network

WiFi is a convenient way to get online, but it's not always the fastest. For the best results, use a wired connection for stationary devices like desktop computers and gaming consoles.

WiFi Congestion

Your router delivers Internet on a WiFi signal, just like how pipes deliver water throughout your home. If more people turn on a faucet or shower at the same time, everyone gets weak water pressure. The same goes for your WiFi. The more devices that connect simultaneously, the greater the chance that you'll have an impacted WiFi experience. If this happens often, you might consider getting a bigger pipe so everyone in your home gets a fast, reliable Internet connection.

Age of Devices

Newer devices are designed to use the latest technology to achieve faster speeds and handle more data. That's why the age and model of the devices on your home network can impact WiFi performance. Newer devices are designed to use the latest technology to achieve faster speeds and handle more data. That's why the age and model of the devices on your home network can impact WiFi performance.

Older devices can't always handle faster speeds and more data. So as a result, those older devices can slow down all the devices on your network. Maybe it's time for an upgrade!
