So. What can we do to fix these issues? We asked our expert.
Richard Pascoe, Technology Consultant recommends:
- You may need to change your WiFi router (it maybe too old or is not working effectively anymore).
- You may need an extender that is ideally compatible with your current WiFi router.
- Or, in a larger home, you may wish to try a “mesh “ network such as Googles WiFi. This will involve placing more than one in your home (ideally 3 that cover large areas) that should result in a steady and reliable WiFi connection.
