Wireless routers have become an essential item in every household and office connected to the Internet. However, it can be quite infuriating when you pay for high-speed internet but your connection still remains unbearably slow. This is even worse if you don’t know how to boost Internet speed. Wi-Fi dead zones or that little annoying buffering symbol can easily send you into a bout of rage.
Wi-Fi can also be quite temperamental. You may be getting a perfect signal in one spot. But as soon as you move to another spot it becomes ridiculously slow and when you get back to the original spot it becomes sluggish again.
How to Boost Internet Speed
Download and Install the NETGEAR Wi-Fi Analytics App
Just click on the icon and the app will identify all the available networks including the one you are currently connected to. One thing you’ll notice is that all the networks are using the same channel, which means everyone in your range is fighting for Wi-Fi connection on the same channel. Such overcrowding on one channel is not a good thing. You have to avoid that if you want to know how to boost Internet speed.
Attention: Read before you continue
Governments and ISPs across the world monitor their users online activities. If found streaming or browsing content on your Fire TV Stick, mobile or PC, you could get into serious trouble.

How to Change Wi-Fi Channel
While still at Wireless Setup, go to your DNS Settings and change from Default to Cloudflare New DNS. Put 126.96.36.199 into the primary DNS and 188.8.131.52 into the secondary DNS. In Google’s DNS put 184.108.40.206. These changes will give you better speed and Wi-Fi experience. Click Apply and run another test to see the difference.
When we run our speed test again, we discover that our upload speed has improved to almost 150 Mbps from the original 31.62 Mbps and our upload speed has increased from the initial 11.56 to 11.80 Mbps.
