Quick tips for speeding up your home internet

Has it been a while since the machine was restarted? Restart the machine.

Connecting to theWiFi

  • Move yourself physically closer to the modem
  • If you have a choice use your 5.0 Ghz network instead of the 2.4 Ghz
  • A real throwback...if you are able try connecting via ethernet

Are there possible freeloaders on your machine?

  • Hardware freeloaders: every phone, tablet, baby monitor, Ring/Nest, etc. use valuable speed; coordinate family time on devices
  • Software freeloaders: close (do not hide) all applications, websites, etc. not in use at the time you are doing work on the internet or Zooming
  • Website freeloaders: close all unnecessary websites like Facebook, Twitter, music, etc.
