Weak connections and slow speeds can be frustrating. Keeping your internet connectivity speed is more important. Here are some steps of about how to increase Internet speed and maximize the performance of your web-connected devices.

Resetting of home network

Sometimes a simple reset of your modem can increase your Internet speed. You may also turn your router off and on to see if that's helpful.

Clean your connections

Dirt is the enemy. Regularly check all modem and router cables to ensure solid and clean connections. Dirty, dusty, or loose cables leading from your cable or computer or router may cause significant reductions in your internet speed. Get compressed air from your local computer store, and use it to blow away the dirt and dust in the connectors. Maintain proper ventilation around all electrical components to avoid overheating.

Use of multiple devices should be avoided 

Turn off smart phones, tablets, set-top boxes, Smart TVs or other devices that you aren't currently using and see whether your Internet speed increases.

Clearing of cache, cookies and browser histories 

You may do this process once in a month to maintain optimum speed.

Internet Explorer: see for the Tools menu and select Delete Browsing History. Check the boxes for browser history, cookies, browser history and Temporary Internet Files.

Firefox: Select "Clear Recent History" from Tools menu. If your version has a "Time Range to Clear" option and select "Everything."

Google Chrome: Enter "[chrome: //settings/clearBrowserData]" in the browser bar. Select all the items that you want to clear. On the "Obliterate the following items from" drop-down menu, select “beginning of time." Click "Clear Browsing Data.”

Scanning of system 

Sometimes it is viruses, spyware or malware that slows down your Internet connection. Close all applications that are active and run your anti-virus program. You can also try a registry cleaner program to increases your Internet speed. To prevent future infections, take time to shut down your computer every day and Turn on automatic security updates for all of your programs.

Removing unnecessary programs

On Windows machines, use the Add or Remove Programs feature from Control Panel to remove any programs which you don’t use regularly. You can also use the Task Manager by "Ctrl+Alt+Delete" to see if any programs are running in the background which you do not want.

Change of Wi-Fi channel
