Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – The internet is important for modern society. Many people are looking for wifi when they go anywhere so they can stay connected to the internet.
But sometimes the wifi signal is weak and slow. This incident will hinder you who are active in cyberspace.
If your wifi is also experiencing similar problems, the following 8 tips can be used to strengthen the signal. The following information is summarized from the Stekom University website, Tuesday (29/8/2023):
1. Change Wifi Frequency on Android
One method that can be used is to change the Wifi frequency on Android devices, namely to 5 GHz. With higher frequencies you will have a lot of free space in the spectrum.
This way the channels don’t overlap and the wifi signal is better too. The way to change it is to go to Settings > Wifi > Advanced > Wifi and click 5 Ghz only.
2. Upgrading Android Firmware
You can also upgrade Android firmware. This upgrade will usually bring manual radio updates to the device.
HP Android is also not slow with upgrading the firmware. How to check and upgrade by going to Settings > About Phone > Software Update.
3. Change Wifi Password Periodically
Another way is to change the wifi password regularly. You can do this if a lot of people are using wifi and it makes the signal weaker.
4. Keep Android HP away from other electronic devices
Keep the Android phone away from other electronic devices to strengthen the wifi signal. Electronic devices will interfere with the wifi signal and will make it difficult to pick up the signal.
5. Remove Old Wifi Connection
Another tip is to delete old or no longer used wifi connections. The saved networks will affect the performance of the wifi signal on Android phones.
To delete a wifi connection, do this by going to Settings > Wifi > Saved Networks > select the network you want to delete and click the Forget button.
6. Move the Router Position
For a stronger wifi signal, you can also move the router to a better location. Namely putting it in an open place, if it is placed in a closed place it will prevent the device from capturing the wifi signal.
7. Restart Router Periodically
Apart from changing the wifi password, you also need to restart the router periodically. Routers will usually experience an increase in temperature and make the signal weak. Apart from that electronic devices also transmit heat signals making noise on the wifi signal.
8. Use a Signal Booster Application
You can also use a signal booster app to boost the wifi signal. To run it, just wait for the wifi signal capture process.
