Now, unifi is going all out to turbo upgrade all its customers including the business segment and aims to complete the exercise by March 2019.

A wired connection is actually the best way to consistently enjoy a fast, stable, and optimal internet speed with no interference.

Here are some tips on how to enjoy ultra-high speed Internet via wired connection:

Step 1: Ensure your Ethernet cable is Cat5e and above (this is normally printed along your cable body)

Step 2: Ensure your PC or laptop’s Ethernet card is a Gigabit Ethernet card (installed in your PC or laptop and provides the Ethernet port for you to connect the Ethernet cable

Step 3: Turn off your wireless router, wait for 10 minutes, and turn it back on. This will allow the new configuration to take place before you can enjoy your new speed.

Step 4: After 10 minutes, turn on your WiFi router and plug in a LAN cable from your computer to your router LAN port. Disconnect all other devices on wired or wireless connection.

Step 5: Once done, click here to do a speed test. During the test, make sure you close all applications that may be using your internet connection. This is to ensure that you get the most accurate result.

On the other hand, a wireless connection is easily affected by environmental factors such as distance from router, obstacles and signal-transmitting devices, other nearby Wi-Fi networks, and the number of devices connected to the same network. Typically, in a perfect situation, WiFi connection speed is up to 340Mbps.

Here are some tips to ensure your wireless connectivity is optimum consistently:

Tip 1: Use a WiFi extender to get wider coverage to serve users located far from router.

Tip 2: Place the router at the centre of your home, far from appliances that generate electromagnetic interference (devices such as cordless phones, Bluetooth devices and microwave ovens also cause interference to your WiFi)

Tip 3: Place the router at an open area with good air circulation and avoid stacking broadband equipment to avoid overheating.

Tip 4: With unifi dual band router, you are able to use 5GHz WiFi frequency instead of 2.4GHz since it has less interference with neighbouring devices.

(Note: 5GHz frequency works best for close range with minimal obstruction. But for long range users, it is recommended to use 2.4GHz frequency for the best experience).

Tip 5: Use TM WiFi optimiser app to clear out the interference from your neighbours so you can enjoy the maximum speed.
