How to Improve Your Wi-Fi Signal

The easiest way to get a better Wi-Fi signal is to change the broadcast channel of your Wi-Fi. Here’s how to change the channel of your Wi-Fi:

On Windows PC: click the “start button” and navigate to “accessories” and launch “command prompt”. On the CMD window, type “netsh wlan show networks bssid”. A list of wireless networks will be displayed on the command prompt window. Check for the channels that are far away from the ones in use or the one with the best signal.

On a Mac: click on the Apple logo and navigate to System report, Network and then select Wi-Fi. A breakdown of nearby channels will be displayed. Identify the recommended channel. Check the back of your router for information on how to get to the settings. This should be a web address, a username, and a password.

Open your browser and key-in the address from the back of your router and use the provided credentials to log-in.
Search for wireless network settings.
Look for the option that allows you to choose your channel. You should have option 1-13. Type the number that you picked earlier.

That is it, you Wi-Fi is now on a clean channel with a better signal and speed.

The latest routers have an “auto” option that picks the best Wi-Fi broadcast channel. We recommend you to select this option if your device has it.
