A internet expert has revealed a speed trick that could save you from the nightmare of slow WiFi.
These are cheap cables that he thinks are worth investing in.
Too many devices relying on your Wi-Fi network can slow it down.
You may want to search your home for so-called ghost devices that you forgot were still connected to your router.
If turning off those devices still doesn’t help, it might be time to connect your wireless devices.
Thomas Lewis, IT expert and founder of RIP City Reviews told Homes & Gardens magazine: “Sometimes we forget: there are still cables! You don’t need wifi.”
Lewis emphasized that you can connect to your cable through a router.
This should allow for a more stable and faster connection.
Compatible cables are usually very cheap, but you need to find out which ones will work with your specific device.
One downside to this plan is that you can’t take your devices around the house, and that’s the main benefit of wireless devices.
Most read in “Phones and Gadgets”.
Lewis said, “However, for hardware that needs the fastest possible Internet — say, a game console, desktop PC, or streaming box — it’s often worth running a cable.”
“The router has a handful of Ethernet ports, so you only need one cable.”
Amazon currently sells some Ethernet cables for as little as $2.99.
Lewis’ advice is supported and encouraged by other experts as well.
According to House Digest, it’s possible to “overuse” WiFi when you’d rather benefit from a wired internet connection.
The outlet lists gamers and remote workers who may want to switch to a faster, more secure wired connection.
It is still recommended to have a wireless router in your home.
You can just use this for other devices that don’t need to be plugged in.
