Here are some ways to help
you maximize your home
WiFi network performance.


Reduce the distance
Place your router or gateway where it's most likely to be used, as the closer you are to it, the stronger the WiFi signal. If you experience a weak WiFi signal or dead zones, we can help you extend your network.

Pro Tip - Occasionally reboot your router or gateway. Just like restarting your computer can fix unknown computer issues, rebooting can correct Internet connection problems and boost your speeds.








Update your device's software
Outdated operating systems, drivers, and firmware can slow down the speed of your device.

Ditch older devices
WiFi speeds may be slower on older computers, laptops, tablets, and smartphones that are unable to handle today's faster speeds.

If your router or gateway is in a perfect, central location but you're still having speed or connectivity issues in certain areas of your home, you may need to expand your network's range. To find out how, visit optimum.net/xtend
