Slow Connections

Slow connections may be hard to diagnose. Sometimes a simple device restart can fix a connection. If other devices are having a similar problem, then your router might be the issue. One way to narrow things down is to check performance on devices with wired connections, like a desktop computer or a smart TV. If the wired device is OK, you have a wireless issue. 

Weak Wireless Signal

Do you have many places in your house where your wireless device drops the connection? It's common to have a strong signal in one area and next to none in other spots, making for frustration. If you are using the router/modem from your internet service provider, it may not be robust enough for your home, especially a larger one. That can be remedied by newer routers with updated technology as well as strategically installed wireless access points. 

4K Streaming Hiccups

Did you know that 4K video requires 3-4 times the bandwidth of HD video? Now that so much content is available in 4K resolution, multiple devices streaming simultaneously might cause buffering or freezes. You might have a fast enough internet connection, but some routers may not have the power to keep up serving multiple video streams.
