Wi-Fi extenders are handy when your router can’t project a strong signal to everywhere in your home that you need it. Your internet provider may offer Wi-Fi extenders for an added monthly cost, or you can purchase one online or from most electronics retailers.

There are many factors that can influence internet speed. In many cases, restarting your router will resolve speed and connectivity issues. Other factors, such as peak usage times and speed throttling can also cause temporary speed issues.
