9 Tips to speed up your business Wi-Fi | BVA INC. emPowering Your IT –

In today’s world, you need fast Wi-Fi. Network World gives nine tips to keep Wi-Fi running full speed.

 

  1. Minimize interference. Double-check channel selections to eliminate co-channel interference. Consider a map-based surveying solution.
  2. Use 5GHz and band steering. The 5GHz band offers more channels.
  3. Make sure to use only WPA2 security with AES encryption.
  4. Reduce SSIDs. Each SSID consumes airtime.
  5. Don’t hide SSIDs; instead, use the enterprise mode of WPA2 for security.
  6. Disable lower data rates and standards to connect to better access points.
  7. Configure channel widths appropriately according to band size.
  8. Shorten packet sizes and transmission times; together, you’ll notice the difference.
  9. Upgrade older standards to 802.11n or 802.11ac.
