For the best Wi-Fi your router or modem should be centered as closely as possible to the center of your home.
Hard-wire in laptops, desktops, smart TVs and gaming systems whenever possible. This helps to ensure a more secure network and the best speeds.
If you haven’t changed your Wi-Fi password in the last few months, call FMTC to update your password, ensuring a connection that isn’t being used by others within range of your wireless signal.
Brick, concrete and other materials absorb your Wi-Fi signal. Keep this in mind when placing your router.
If your home has a lot of corners, concrete, has more than one story or has a basement, you may need a Wi-Fi extender for better reach. Contact our IT department today for more information.
Avoid putting your router or modem in a closet or in the kitchen. Never cover your router.
