“The Wi-Fi’s out!”
Those words can send a shiver down any tech department’s spine. In this day and age, more and more businesses are beginning to rely on the Internet to get things done, which allows for the rise of the remote workforce and increased flexibility during quarantine. However, the downside to this is that the Internet becomes a necessity for getting almost anything done. In other words, if your Wi-Fi shorts out, productivity grinds to a halt, and your workers become sitting ducks, on-the-clock but with nothing to show for it.
Thus, if your business frequently has problems with poor Wi-Fi connectivity, it can put a major dent in your pocketbook and your team’s morale. If you’re in this boat, though, don’t fret; with the experts at Central Telephone of Plymouth on the case, finding the right wiring solutions becomes quick and easy.
Below, we will discuss a few common reasons that your Internet service is spotty to show our expertise and to hopefully give you something to work with if you’re encountering Wi-Fi problems.
A Quick Caveat: Don’t Try to Fix the Problem Yourself
We always recommend you hire a professional in network wiring services to diagnose and treat your ailing Wi-Fi connection. Because it’s so essential to your business’s functioning, you don’t want to risk making the problem worse. Plus, by contacting a professional, you minimize the time that your business will be “down—” that is, without Internet access. You’ll be able to go back to work in a jiffy, instead of spending days trying different plugs and hoping something clicks.
That being said, a few common causes of spotty Wi-Fi include:
● A signal that isn’t strong enough | A router that is too far from where you need it to be can mean that your devices don’t pick up on its signal. Distributed antenna systems can usually fix this problem.
● Old operating systems | Whether it’s in terms of your computer or router, if the technology is old, sometimes it is beyond repair. Central Telephone can help you determine if this is the source of the problem, as “old” is relative.
● Channel interference | Each Wi-Fi network operates on a specific “channel.” If your network is on the same one as a nearby business, you could experience connectivity problems.
