  1. Make sure you have the most up-to-date version of the manufacturer’s software.  
  1. Turn it off and on again! You need to turn your router off, unplug it from the power and then wait 30 seconds before reconnecting.  
  1. If possible, position your router in the middle of the house. Wireless routers need open spaces, away from walls and obstructions.  
  1. If your router has external antennas, position them vertically. It can also help to put the router on a high shelf to get a better signal.  
  1. Check that there aren’t any unwanted guests accessing your WiFi. If your network is open or has a weak password, it will be easy to access by those close by. Make sure all your settings are secure.
