Quit Extra Programs
Close unused tabs, games, Spotify, Dropbox, Apple Music etc. All these running programs take up bandwidth.
Most homes have two bands of WiFi 5 and 2.5 GHz. It will show as two channels in your wifi list.
5GHz may be a bit faster but 2.5GHz passes through walls and stuff better. With that in mind, if you are far from your access point, try 2.5 or put all your phones on 2.5 or just try distributing the load in the house
One way to test if it's Wifi VS your home's bandwidth is to hook your computer via a data cable directly to your router - just like hardwiring at work. Your router is where the provider’s cable comes in. Most of these devices have data ports on them (see pic below). You can buy cheap CAT/5 data cables on Amazon. Most PCs will be easy to hookup, you just need the cable. Newer Macbook Airs will need an adapter. Also available on Amazon.
Distribute The Workload
Many of us have kids at home on Zoom at the same time or spouses using connections for their jobs. We need to reduce the overlap somehow in these cases. Families may need to schedule usage around each other if wifi issues persist.
Restart Your Router and/or Computer
• Computers deserve to be shut down and restarted daily. It clears running background processes.
• Quit and disable DropBox, Spotify, Skype if you are not using them, they run in the background constantly using up the signal.
