1. Check Your modem Location
Make sure your router is front and center and not in the corner or the shed. Keep it about 5 feet off the ground so that the signal will reach more of your home.
2. Reboot Your modem
Comcast told 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS that most software and speed updates require a restart, similar to what you’d find on your smartphone or another mobile device. Unplug it from the outlet, wait 15-20 seconds and plug it back in to have it receive the latest updates.
3. Use the 5 GHz Connection
Most modems connect to the 2.4 GHz radio band by default, but the devices often have the 5 GHz spectrum going unused.
4. Pick the Right Channel
Some Wi-Fi modems have an auto select feature to find the best channel that isn’t being used by others in the area, which could help increase your online experience, while other modems allow you to manually make the switch.
5. how old is the modem?
An outdated modem could be the reason why it seems like you are crawling on the web.
