The more things you have that require Internet access, the stronger the network needs to be.

As the internet becomes more and more integrated into everyday life in all sorts of new and exciting ways, a strong wifi signal becomes a necessity. A weak or inconsistent wifi signal can wreak havoc on your home automation and hamper the magic of having your very own home theater. If you find your wifi signal to be less than on point, here are some helpful tips you can make use of to give it a much-needed boost.

Update Your Router’s Firmware

It is very possible that a poor wifi signal is interfering with your home automation or home theater because your router needs an update. It’s not common knowledge, but router manufacturers are always tweaking software to eke out a little more speed and performance. While the exact steps you will need to take to update your router depend on the manufacturer and model, most modern routers have a firmware upgrade button, so in some cases updating your router is literally as easy as pressing a button.

Put Your Router In The Best Place

While many people tuck their routers away where they can’t be seen, this is not always best. If you have a wired router, this can definitely interfere with your signal. Wireless routers need to be placed away from walls and obstructions in order to give the best signal possible. Elevate your router if possible.

You May Be Relying On Obsolete Hardware

While it is important to get the most out of equipment you have, the old ‘if it’s not broken, don’t fix it’ mentality does not apply to technology. If you have been using the same router for years and years and you notice weak or inconsistent wifi, it is definitely time to get your router replaced. If you can’t even remember when you got your router, there have most likely been numerous updates in the meantime.
