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.
