But you can't just insinuate into the router or modem and fix everything.

So let me help you find peace.

1. Wi-Fi is the radio and electromagnetic waves, so all the appliances in your home and your Wi-Fi signal operate on the same frequency. However, equipment like microwaves, toasters, etc., leak radiation to cause electromagnetic or RF interference at 2.4GHz. To fix this, use a Wi-Fi that possesses a 5GHz frequency on an 802.11n network. Even better is keeping the router far away from the lights as it generates a magnetic field that will interact with radio frequencies. Know more about the router logins by addresses. Did you know that dishwashers and laundry machines can affect your internet connection? Because water retains energy from wireless waves. Also, never place your router near the mirror as it bounces the signal leading to an unstable network. So what did you comprehend? Always place your routers in an open area and keep them updated.

2. Primarily use a speed test to ensure the tricks work, even if it's getting you some more Mbps. This method is common but works sometimes. All you have to do is turn off any apps or services running in the background, then open your device settings, double-click on the privacy option, then search for background apps, and you will display all your apps list, so now go ahead and turn off the ones you don't want running. Don't forget to turn off the peer-to-peer updates by selecting the Update and Security found on the settings page, click on the advanced options, and then delivery optimization.

Once opened, double click on the "Internet Protocol v4(TCP/IPv4)", ensure that you have selected the "obtain an IP address automatically" option. Down the box, you will find the option "Use the following DNS server addresses" type in the Preferred DNS server field and in the alternate DNS server; now click okay and close.

Still, want more speed? Type services in your search bar.

Once you're in, you will end up on the setup page mostly, scroll on the page until you find Static DNS and add, then if you have an extra field, leave it blank. Now click Save and continue.

4.

Now open the analyze tab, and you'll find a graph that will show the Wi-Fi power in your area. And if you want to change your channel, find the option in the Wi-Fi settings.

5. You can also escalate the speed by entering into the Device Manager, finding the network adapters, and expanding it by clicking on the arrow. Now choose the network card and go to the advanced tab. Under the property, select "large send-offload V to IPv4 or IPv6 and set the value to disabled, save the changes. You can enable it if you face any issues.

Altering the speed by bandwidth also works efficiently. Open the run box and type gpedit.msc, open the administrative templates, double click network, then QoS packet scheduler, you'll find a limited reserved bandwidth double-click on it. Once the new window pops up, click enabled and change the bandwidth limit to 0 and apply them.
