1. Make sure your wifi router is up to date  – 802.11 ac dual band is the best readily available and prices are under $100.  But if you do not have at least an “N” router, you probably need an upgrade.

2. Update your routers’ firmware.

3. Change the channel

4. Relocate the router – Central and up high

5. Try a range extender
