  • Tape your router on your head. That way you always get the best signal.

  • I failed every single one of these.

  • I have a 1000 Mbps plan and run wireless internet and get around 20 Mbps. My router says it supports 1600 Mbps, so what do I do to optimize the speed? Thanks!

  • That moment when I realize my Router is on the floor, under the TV, and behind a bunch of walls relative to where I need it most...

  • lol, dont place routers around other electronic devices

  • very informative. I'll leave a note on my neighbor's door.

    I do not think my neighbor will approve of me moving around his router.

  • I won't think my neighbour would let me to do something with the router. Just using it for free from my friend.

  • my router is on fire in the fridge. what's the next step?

  • why is this guy asking a question in every sentence?

  • Get a router that supports both 2.4 GHz + 5 GHz, there is significant noise reduction with the 5 GHz signal, but a lot of older devices aren’t compatible with the 5 GHz signal and only work on the 2.4 GHz signal.

  • dont forget to delete system32

  • Wrongly titled. The subject cover is Wifi signal strength not Wifi speed.

  • I don't have antennas... Tsk..

  • My router doesn't even have a single antenna...

  • never in my entire life have I seen a router with an antenna

  • still prefer to be connected wired through ethernet. more reliable connection and better security.
