Update Your Existing Router Firmware

As a matter of fact, your existing WiFi router firmware just needs to be updated by the latest version of technology.

Mostly, all router manufacturers are always tweaking (pull or twist) software to eke (increase or save) out a small amount of speed.

How hard—or how easy—it is to upgrade your existing router's firmware depends upon the device make and model entirely.

Nowadays, most routers have an update process built into the administration interface right-away. So, folks, it is just a matter of clicking on the 'firmware upgrade' button.

Routers of other models, particularly if they're of an older version, requires you to visit the manufacturer's website - download an up-to-date firmware file and upload it. It sounds boring (tedious), but still, a good thing to do.

In fact, error can easily be fixed only if you are running the latest firmware on your existing router.

In addition, even if your wireless network is sick (ailing), then you should take a glance to update the firmware on a regular basis in order to improve the performance of your WiFi network much better.

Swap The Old Antenna With A New Antenna

If your existing WiFi router uses an internal antenna, then adding an external one would be a good option. It will lead to a stronger WiFi signal ever.

In case, your router has come with antennas then you can add on yourself, but if not or if you have throw them away a long time before, then you have to add it by yourself to have the best performance of your WiFi network.

If you have an antenna with you and it is not giving a better performance, then we would suggest to get rid of the older one and go with a brand new antenna.

Despite the fact, you can choose between omni-directional antennas that spread the internet signals in every direction, or directional ones that give a signal only in a specific direction.
