GET THE FASTEST SPEED FROM YOUR WIFI
The phrase ‘location, location, location’ doesn’t just apply to the property you’ve bought. Follow these simple tips to help you get the best speed:
The higher the modem is located the better. Wifi signals are sent out radially and downwards.
Modems do not like microwaves and white goods, so the kitchen isn’t the best place to choose. They don’t like televisions or mirrors either.
Every modem has several wifi channels but is factory preset using just one of three. Some of the latest modems automatically select the best channel, otherwise you can ask your telecom company to change it for you.
Make sure you have used your security code to stop others using your service and slowing it down.
If your wifi signal still cannot reach parts of your home then you might want to consider purchasing a wifi extender. Search on sites such as amazon.co.uk as the reviews will be in English and easier to follow if your French skills aren’t up to the challenge, but buy from a French site such as amazon.fr as the guarantee will be more useful and the equipment will have the correct plugs.
