Change your router

If you use a wireless router to connect to the Internet and it is slow, changing the router may help. There can be many reasons behind slow wireless Internet connections and the following are common issues.

• Low signal strength
When the wireless signal strength is low, you usually get a lower surfing speed. Changing the location of the wireless router or buying a new router with high signal capability will enhance the surfing speed.

• Low bandwidth router
‘g’ and ‘b’ classes are the most common for current wireless routers. If your Wi-Fi network is used by many users, high bandwidth ‘n’ class routers will definitely help.

• Router has not been configured properly
Many home-used wireless routers are used with factory settings. These settings may not be ideal for your broadband connection. Read the manual or get professional help to tweak and speedup the Internet connection.

Disable heavy web content
Heavy web content such as images and flash animations consume more bandwidth than you ever imagine. If you use a dial-up connection, these will turn out to be disasters. Web browser plug-ins (Ex: Flashblock Firefox extension) are used for blocking download of flash content, so the user experiences faster Internet.
