Mac|Life - - CONTENTS - Writ­ten by nick peers

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.
