When testing WiFi there are a few rules to follow:

  • Don’t Do the Test Only Once
  • Don’t Test at the Wrong Time of Day – after the children come home from school – Sunday night when everyone
  • Don’t Do the Test in the Wrong Place – do it in the same room as the router not at the other end of the house
  • Make sure you do not have other devices using the internet at the same time
  • Before you test reboot your computer
