Ron Brown’s presentation was loaded with info on how your wifi and equipment really work, plus lots of great tips like…

  • Check to see if you are connecting via the 4 or 5a version of your wifi.  The 4a version goes further (into other rooms, etc.), but is slower, but the 5a version is faster for single room use.
  • If you rent your modem and it’s over 5 yrs old, ask your carrier for a new one for better speed.
  • If your modem/router is near your computer, connect directly with an ethernet cable for faster speed.
  • Update your firmware on your modem/router for better performance.
  • When possible, get your own modem/router from Bestbuy or other reputable store, since Amazon routers may be out of date, even though advertised as new
