WiFi at home and office etc are all good as long as they are providing good internet speed. Everyone faces this place within the WiFi range that doesn’t have good speed and the network is very slow. These are the WiFi dead zones that get the least of the WiFi network of router causing choppy internet. It’s not the router that causes these dead zone and even a perfectly fine working router can have dead zones. These are there due to obstacles such as walls and devices at home that we have.

These dead zones are annoying but there are things that can fix these zones or at least help you bring it to a good state. To find these dead zones you can use apps such as WiFi analyzer that let you have the right information on WiFi strength. Walk around and see where the strength is weakest because that is that dead zone.

Relocate your router location

Routers position places an important role in the WiFi network as a router placed at the dense place at some corner will have a weak network at many points. A router placed in the middle of the house will cover most of the places and the strength will be equally available. If your router isn’t performing well and has too many dead zones try moving it somewhere else. Make sure it’s not surrounded by too many walls and objects that may interfere with the network.

Keep your router firmware updated.

An outdated router is mostly a choppy router that fails to provide the best of your plan. Even with an expensive plan subscription, you might fail to get good internet experience with an outdated router. Update the firmware from time to time to ensure it’s giving its best performance.

Use WiFi booster

WiFi booster or signal extender is hardware that lets you increase the WiFi range. Keeping these within the routers range at the right place can increase the coverage area by up to twice the range or router itself.
