How to Set Up WiFi Correctly?
To set up WiFi correctly, you need to understand what other WiFi networks are present in your area. This information can be obtained using a WiFi analysis tool. Most importantly, you want to know which WiFi channels are occupied the most so you can select one where interference won’t be such an issue.
If you discover that all channels on the 2.4 GHz are occupied, you should consider switching to the 5 GHz band, which consists of 23 non-overlapping channels, instead of just 3. Many modern WiFi routers support both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz spectrum, so you may not even need to buy new hardware.
Finally, you should also figure out the best place for your WiFi router. Again, this is something a capable WiFi analysis application should be able to help you with. In the next section, we introduce popular WiFi analyzer applications, each offering a unique set of capabilities.
