Many people complain that their internet is slow, but is it really?

Most people are connecting to their internet via WiFi and this can cause a number of problems. The simple way to find out is

1. Take your laptop and connect it via a cable to your router and then run a speed test. Use http://www.broadbandspeedchecker.co.uk and make a note of the numbers.

2. Now disconnect your laptop and take it to your favourite chair and try again. If the numbers are substantially different try changing your WiFi channel.

If changing the channel doesn’t work you should look at repeaters or maybe running a cable to another access point.

Dont run the speed test on a computer hard wired to your router and then try and compare the results with your iPad or the alike. They have slower processors and will usually return a lower speed.
