If you have a problem with WiFi performance in a particular area, at work or at home, this can have several causes:
Interference: WiFi and non WiFi devices causing radio interference that blocks WiFi transmissions.
High utilisation: Too many devices transmitting on one frequency and blocking each other’s communications
Configuration: Bad configuration of the wireless equipment.
Hardware problems: A faulty access point or router, or a faulty client device (laptop, mobile phone).
Software problems: The drivers and software running on your access point, router or client device.
Underlying network: the wired network, switches, routers used to run the WiFi network.
The internet connection: Problems with the internet connection provided by your ISP.
