Getting faster home Wi-Fi: Monday Productivity Pointers

Speed up your home wi-fi

Explore Monday Productivity Pointers at lynda.com.

In this week’s Monday Productivity Pointers, we’ll focus on speeding up your home wireless network. In the first video, I’ll tell you how to identify your home wireless network’s weakest (and slowest) link.

You’ll learn how Internet data speed is measured. Then we’ll examine the components you need to connect to the Internet via wireless, such as a cable or FIOS modem, wireless adapter, router, and your wireless configuration—and how they all need to work together to give you faster home wi-fi connections.

In the second (members-only) video, I’ll explain why a dual-band router helps you achieve the highest 300 Mbps Internet download speeds, and how to configure your router for the best performance. We’ll also explore your choices for wireless encryption, so your connection is as secure as it is speedy. Watch this week’s videos to get your home network performing at its best, and check back next week for more Monday Productivity Pointers.

Learn it from the experts.
