How to troubleshoot your own WiFi and fix your slow internet speed when working at home

“My internet speed is slow” “my ISP is crap” “Why is my Zoom video conferencing buffering?”  these have to be one of the most frequently written comment on my How To Get Faster Internet and WiFi series on my YouTube channel. It’s time to learn how to troubleshoot your WiFi – especially now that we are all working from home and our kids are learning from home.

So before blasting the poor customer support agent for terrible speed, let me show you how easy it is to troubleshoot your network with these simple steps anyone can do.

Whenever I hear “I have slow internet”, I go through these steps and it’s amazing how simple it is and how often these make the world of a difference. If, after going through these steps your internet is still slow, then, by all means, call your ISP.

With that in mind, let’s start troubleshooting our WFi to get more internet speed:

I hope that was helpful and you were able to check your network and WiFi. If you want more info on making your PS4 faster check this out, and can check out How to secure your WiFi with these 7 simple steps you must do right now
