Build a better network
How to get to grips with your network and make it perform better for you
Discover how to scrutinize your home network performance and make it work better with our advice on improving your infrastructure and fixing issues.
These days, your network is put to much greater use than simply getting your Mac online to browse the web and check email. Inevitably, that means enduring a lot more disruption if something goes wrong with it — no more Netflix, tunes won’t stream from Apple Music or Spotify, and you may be unable to access files on your networked storage until the problem is fixed.
But, how do you go about identifying the root cause of the problem, which could originate anywhere from your internet service provider to the location within your home that you’ve chosen to use your Mac, iPhone, iPad, Apple TV or some other kit?
Here you’ll learn about diagnosing network interference, kit that can boost your network, ways to improve security, new things to do with your network, and more. Even if your network’s running well right now, networking niggles can suddenly sneak up on you, so hold on to this guide to keep yourself connected.
