In today’s digital age, everyone wants a strong and stable Internet connection at home. After all, it can get frustrating when you have to
deal with dead WiFi zones and weak connections.
But don’t worry – the expert on all things WiFi is here. With the Singtel WiFi Master, you’ll get top tips and advice to boost your home signal. Free of charge!
Your router requires ventilation
Place the router in an open area and avoid stacking it with other heat-producing
Reboot your router regularly
Channel congestion typically occurs after a period of usage. To get around this issue,
simply reboot your router when you notice a dip in WiFi performance. In fact, a monthly reboot is recommended.
Keep your router away from signal-transmitting devices
Placing your router close to signal-transmitting equipment, such as cordless phones, Bluetooth devices, baby monitors, and microwave ovens, will lead to WiFi congestion.
Keep your yellow fibre optic cable in good condition
Take good care of your yellow fibre optic cable and keep from touching its tip. Avoid coiling, tying, and bending the cable, and prevent any pets from getting close to it. A damaged fibre optic cable will affect the overall serviceability of your fibre broadband.
High broadband speed does not mean high WiFi speed
WiFi speeds can reach up to 230Mbps, depending on the device and external factors, such as the layout of a home, as well as WiFi congestion. Use a LAN cable (minimum Cat5e) for optimal and a more stable speed.
- Use a WiFi mesh for more extensive coverage
Change your faceplate
Newer residential buildings and condominiums are usually connected to Cat5e or Cat6 Ethernet cables. In order to accommodate this, simply change your faceplate.
Switch between two WiFi signals with a Dual-band router
With two WiFi signals (2.4 Ghz and 5.0 Ghz) to switch between, Singtel’s Dual-band router will help ease channel traffic as too many devices connecting to a single band often leads to congestion. This occurs most often during the peak surfing period from 6p.m. to 1a.m.
