For an improved WiFi connection, we recommend rebooting your modem and router, and placing your router in an open location in your home where the signal can travel more freely. You may also find internet speed improvement by minimizing the number of devices utilizing the WiFi at any given time. Turning off devices that aren’t currently in use can help to free up additional bandwidth for active tasks.
