Wifi signals are made of radio waves that have a shorter wavelength than AM radio and cell phones but longer than satellite tv. How can I make my wifi faster? There are several things you can do to make your wifi faster without paying more, and they mostly have to do with the placement of your wifi router.

    I don’t think my neighbour will approve of me moving his router around.

    Vox your title has a mistake. Wifi doesn’t travel faster. Speed of Wifi is
    constant like speed of light. It should be written ‘Want stronger wifi

    Also, a big part of why your internet is slow on your PC is because the air
    card you have doesn’t have a gigabit ethernet card. If you have a newer
    model computer, then you may have it, but a lot of the time people don’t
    and that will seriously slow you down. Even though you pay for whatever
    download speed (i.e. 80 mps), it still will only get to about 45-50 mps
    without a gigabit ethernet card.

    Maybe also consider buying a router extender hotspot

    You forgot tip 6! If you have Time Warner Cable, cancel your service ASAP.
    after service has been canceled, you will see that your internet works just
    about the same as before you canceled due to Time Warner’s terrible
    services. Another plus is that you wont have an internet bill anymore! i
    hope this helps!

    Thanks for this. Our router is in the living room, literally next to lots
    of electric appliances and is placed on the far corner of it. No wonder the
    signal in my room, which has resemblance with the diagram in 0:27 and my
    room was in the far right.
