 INTERVAL '' '''

THE WORLD OVER - THE DEVELOPING WORLD MANY TIMES OVER - mankind has been restricted to their home survival, for many months now and -

And also with a permanent annoyance, a very, very lousy Internet monkeybrain connection.

When we are working, a video call with colleagues becomes pixelated, with delayed audio. When we are relaxing, movies and video games take a hell of a long time to download. In the worst cases, the connection drops altogether.

As people have hunkered down to contain the spread of the coronavirus, average Internet speeds all over the world have slowed. Some broadband providers are feeling crushed by the heavy traffic. And dated Internet equipment can create a bottleneck. Even the most tech savvy are affected.

Keerti Malkote, the founder of Aruba Networks, a division of Hewlett Packard Enterprise that offers Wi-Fi products for businesses, said that in recent weeks, his DSL service from AT&T had dropped periodically. He waited several days for a technician to arrive and is now contemplating subscribing to Comcast for a second Internet connection.

''I had three or four days of calls, and I had to find a particular spot in my house where I have better coverage,'' Mr. Melkote said.

At the beginning of the pandemic, my Internet also became unbearably slow and suffered several failures. So I asked experts to explain what's causing our Internet problems - and the different remedies.

What is causing your slow speeds, your Internet provider or your equipment at home? Here's a method to figure that out.

.- Download an Internet speed app on your phone, like Speedtest by Ookia [free for iPhones and Android phones].
.- Stand near your router and use the app to run a speed test.
.- Move to a room further away from the router and run the speed test again.
.- Compare the results.

Less than 15 megabits a second is pretty slow. Speeds of about 25 megabits a second are sufficient for streaming a high definition video; more than 40 megabits a second is ideal for streaming lots of video and playing video games.

If the speed test results were fast near your Wi-Fi router but slow further away, the problem is probably your router; said Sanjay Norontha, the product lead of Google's Nest WiFi Internet router. If speeds were slow in both test locations, the issue is probably your Internet provider.

If you have pinpointed that the problem is your router, the bad news is that you may have to buy new equipment. The good news is that there are many approaches to improving your Wi-Fi connection.

Start by asking yourself these questions :

1.- How old is my router?
2.- Where is my router placed?
3.- How big is my home?
4.- Are other devices slowing down my connection?

How old is my router? If it's more than five years old, you should definitely replace it. In 2015, In America, the Federal Communications Commission removed restrictions that had limited the wireless transmission power of Wi-Fi routers, allowing new routers to be 20 times as powerful as they were before.

Upgrading to a new router will probably be one of your most life-changing tech purchases.

Where is my router placed? Ideally your router should be in a central location in your home so that the signal covers as many rooms as possible. In addition, your router should be out in the open, like on top of a shelf, not hidden inside cabinets or under a desk, to beam a clear signal.

You should also avoid placing the router near objects and materials that cause interference, as in large fish tanks or metal.

Are other devices slowing down connection? Gadgets with slower Internet technology can slow down speeds for all your other devices .For example, the iPhone 5 from 2012 uses older generation Wi-F- standard. Newer iPhones, from 2014 and later, use a faster wireless standard.

Are neighbors slowing down my connection? In apartment buildings crowded with gadgets, device signals are fighting for room on the same radio channels. You can see what radio channels your neighbor devices are using with scanning apps like Wi-Fi analyzer.

Then consult your router's instruction manual for steps on picking a clearer radio channel. This step is tedious, and many modern routers automatically choose the clearer radio channel for you.

Does my modem need to be replaced? The modem, which is the box that connects your home to the Internet provider's service, also can become outdated.

To sum, as a last resort, you can turn to backups. Many modern phones come with a hotspot feature, which turns the device's cellular connection into a miniature Wi-Fi network. [Apple and Google list steps on their websites on how to use the hot spot feature on Iphones and Androids.]

  1. A router may have interfaces for different types of physical layer connections, such as copper cables, fiber optic, or wireless transmission. It can also support different network layer transmission standards. Each network interface is used to enable data packets to be forwarded from one transmission system to another. https://192-168-0-1ip.org
