Mistakes you should not make in your router
The goal is to get the router to work as well as possible and not have any problems. It is essential that you do not make these mistakes, since you will not only have problems in terms of operation, but you could also see that security is affected and you may have intruders. That could lead to data theft or even lock you out of the network.
A really common mistake is misplace the router. Basically we contract the Internet, they give us the device and we put it in a place in the house where it does not get in the way or where installation is easier for us. But of course, that may be limiting the connection and we may be wasting everything that this device has to offer.
Ideally, you should think carefully about where to place the router. If you think that you do not have it in the best place, you can always change the installation and locate it in another area where you can take better advantage of it. This way you will achieve optimal coverage, more speed and you will not have the dreaded continuous cuts when browsing. Keep this in mind:
- Locate the router in a central area of the house
- Also focus on spaces where you are going to use it
- Move the router away from possible interference, such as other electronic devices
- Avoid walls or nearby walls
Have a weak password
This failure is also quite common and can lead to the entry of intruders. In many cases we left the same password it comes from the factory and that’s a mistake. So is using a weak key, which does not really meet the security requirements to be fully protected and avoid problems.
The ideal is to create a random and unique password, which we do not use anywhere else. That key must contain letters (both uppercase and lowercase), numbers, and other special symbols. Always avoid putting things that relate to us, such as our name or date of birth. Also, changing it from time to time is a good idea.
Your router with many options in terms of setting. However, the truth is that on many occasions we overlook them. For example, you can create a guest network to have it available if you receive visitors and thus avoid problems or saturation. You can assign a different password and even limit it.
You can also use two bands to connect to 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz. The first is the best to connect from further away, while the second is the one that will provide faster speeds. Using both is very important to always have the best connection available.
In short, it is important that you avoid these 3 errors that we have shown in the router. In this way you can have a better connection and ensure that the speed is always stable, without cuts and without problems to navigate.
