Whether it's at home or work, we've all had to suffer through bad Wi-Fi networks that load slowly or have frequent dropouts. Here's what you need to know about setting up your Wi-Fi network:

  • Many people have inadequate Wi-Fi networks
  • Hardware, access point location, and building structure impact your Wi-Fi network
  • A Wi-Fi electrician can help you set up your network for your home or business. 

Here's what you need to know about common Wi-Fi problems and getting the most out of your network. Or alternatively, if you're not in the mood to read please contact one of our ITA electricians. 

Common problems

A range of factors can cause problems with your Wi-Fi network, some of them can be fixed quite easily with the right technical know-how, while others require correct planning from the initial setup.

Some common causes of Wi-Fi problems include:

  • Incorrect hardware – If your modem, router, or access points are inadequate or not well suited to your needs then your network will not be able to perform as well as it should.

  • Building structure – Things like multiple floors, walls, and metal pipes can interrupt you Wi-Fi signal, so network setup needs to account for your building structure.

  • Access point location – Choosing the best location or locations for Wi-Fi access points can help increase speed and eliminate dead zones in your home or business.
  • Large areas – Wi-Fi networks that cover large areas need to be carefully planned to maximise the strength of your network while also using hardware efficiently.

Any of these issues can cause your connection to be slow, drop out frequently, or no support the number of devices you require.
