6 Ways to Improve the Speed and Coverage of your Wi-Fi

Ring in the new year with high-speed hopes! Our team at Micrologic is dedicated to bringing all of our customers better, faster and always reliable Wi-Fi solutions for your home, business, or home office. From upgrading your old router, to using a mesh satellite, we’ve got you covered.


Here are 6 ways to improve the speed and coverage of your Wi-Fi coverage at home…


1. Upgrade your old router to the GigaSpire BLAST:

The GigaSpire Blast was the first to Wi-Fi6. This next generation system has the latest Wi-Fi standard is Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax), which provides faster speeds, better coverage, and improved reliability compared to older Wi-Fi standards. By upgrading to a GigaSpire Wi-Fi 6 you can enjoy better Wi-Fi performance and support for more devices.

2. Position your router in a central location:

To ensure optimal Wi-Fi coverage throughout your home, it’s best to position your router in a central location, away from walls and other obstructions. This will help to minimize signal interference and ensure that your devices can connect to the Wi-Fi network with ease. Think about how you plan or use internet in your home. For example, if you never stream movies or need the fastest internet speed in the basement, putting the router down there may not be a priority. Routers send out wireless signals but physical obstructions can still cause you problems. Even the ground can absorb some of your signal. It’s a good idea to place your router a few feet off the ground such as on a desk, cabinet or wall mount. Don’t worry, our Ultimate Wi-Fi service comes with whole-home optimization and installation. Our expert Wi-Fi technicians will ensure your system is set up to deliver the best experience, so you don’t have to.

3. Use wired connections for devices that require a stable connection:

This one may seem counterintuitive, but if you have devices that require a stable and consistent internet connection, such as gaming consoles or desktop computers, it’s best to use a wired connection instead of Wi-Fi. This will help to minimize latency and ensure a stable connection.

4. Remove old devices from your network:

Older devices that are no longer in use or are rarely used can slow down your Wi-Fi network. You can remove these devices from your network using the MicrologicIQ app to free up bandwidth and improve Wi-Fi performance for your other devices.

5. Enable MyPriorities in MicrologicIQ:

MyPriorities is an exclusive feature of ExperienceIQ in your app. With it enabled, you can prioritize certain types of internet traffic such as streaming videos, online gaming, or Work apps to ensure that they receive sufficient bandwidth and do not suffer from lag or buffering.

Enabling MyPriorities on your router can help to improve Wi-Fi performance for specific devices or applications.

6. Use a Wi-Fi GigaSpire Mesh Satellite:

If you have a large home or areas where Wi-Fi coverage is weak, consider using a GigaSpire u4m. A Wi-Fi Mesh Satellite can boost the signal of your existing router, while a mesh network can provide seamless Wi-Fi coverage throughout your home by using multiple access points. This may sound complicated, but we assure you it’s not. As part of the Micrologic Ultimate Wi-Fi service, our technicians will assess where you need extended Wi-Fi coverage and install a mesh satellite for you. That’s why we call it the Ultimate Wi-Fi experience– so, you don’t have to worry about the details. We’ve got you.
