Are you still working from home?
Tired of always getting this message that pops up on Zoom:
Luckily, our team of tech experts has a few tips and tricks for helping you stabilize your Wi-Fi while working from home.
Here’s a list of quick, practical and free tips that you can implement today:
- Make sure your router is located in a high, central spot. The best spot for your router is a place that will reach everyone in your home, and the optimal height for your router is between 3-4 feet off of the ground.
- Remove any clutter surrounding your router to ensure that the connection is reaching your devices, especially locations near or behind your TV, because they will cut down your wireless signal.
- Move close to your router, especially during important calls or Zoom meetings that require high bandwidth.
- Limit non-essential activities, such as streaming Netflix, listening to music or any form of gaming.
- Regularly reboot your router to make sure it is up-to-date and running properly. Each router has its own way of rebooting, so make sure to look at the instructions carefully.
- If worse comes to worst, you can always hardwire your laptop to the router.
- Last but not least, if you’re still having Wi-Fi trouble, don’t stress, call MIS!
