• How to Speed Up Your PC Network

    If you own a Linksys router, one of the most important things to learn how to do is troubleshooting its connection capabilities. To begin identify that you have a Linksys router. Usually, you will know upon installation, but be sure to check the IP address if you have an older model. Most Linksys routers follow the 192.168.1.1 address. Once you have identified the network, you will be able to look into ways to improve it.

    One of the first ways to improve your connection speed is to visit the Linksys website and make sure to download the latest firmware. If you are already using the latest update, try to use a different wireless channel, which can help you reduce interference.

    You can visit the configuration page by going to http://192.168.1.1 and entering your address bar. From there, you can select the channels until you find the best one.

    You can also check the router’s status page to make sure that there are no additional computers or devices connected to your network. To do this, you will need to enter http://192.168.1.1 again and see what the “Wireless Security” tab says, underneath the “Wireless” section.

    Finally, you can always replace the router’s antenna with a single direction one to help you focus your signal and improve its range, thereby improving its speed and connectivity.
