Guide to Boosting WIFI 6 Speeds

  1. Determine the maximum broadband speed of your wired connection to your PC or laptop. Also, verify the maximum support speeds of your WAN and LAN ports.
  2. Identify the WIFI specifications of your wireless adapter (for PC/laptop) or smartphone. For instance, 802.11ac, 802.11ax, 802.11BE. Ensure that both your wireless router and client device support the same standard.
  3. Utilize Wifi Analyzer tools to scan your surrounding environment and identify the least used WIFI channel. Rather than setting it to AUTO, manually select the appropriate channel, such as Channel 48.
  4. Establish separate Access Point names for the 2.4 GHz band and the 5 GHz band. The 5 GHz band provides greater bandwidth and speed.
  5. Execute the speedtest.net app on your PC, laptop, or smartphone that is connected to the wireless router. Select the same server for the test. If the speed test result is lower than your anticipated number, try using a different speed test server. This is because some free speed test servers may limit their speed against tests from users of competitors.

The above troubleshooting tips should assist you in achieving speeds close to your line speed on your devices connected to your router. Good luck!
