New technologies are changing our lives at a dizzying rate. Who was going to tell us a few years ago that we were going to be able to put a washing machine, see the food we have in the refrigerator, or control the temperature of the air conditioning, without the need to be at home or in front of the appliance?
More and more devices that we have connected to the WiFi network. For that reason, the Movistar Smart WiFi Router is the best option for your home, due to the multitude of advantages it has over other routers. It offers 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz WiFi access simultaneously, allowing you to connect a large number of devices to your network and get a fast connection with the best possible coverage.
Do you notice that, despite this, your connection is not as fast as always? Here are some tips to optimize the WiFi network and get the most out of your connections.
Optimize your network with the Smart WiFi mobile app
There are times when we don’t know why, but we can’t get a good WiFi signal. In these situations, the Smart WiFi mobile app can be of great help to find the problem and solve it since it allows you to diagnose your WiFi network.
It first checks its status and, if necessary, optimizes the router settings to improve WiFi. Within the application, available for iPhone and Android, you have to go to the “My network” tab located in the bottom bar of the app and select “WiFi optimization”. In this way, the application will tell you if the channel used by default is saturated and, in that case, you can improve the WiFi signal by clicking on the “Optimize” button.
Likewise, from the Smart WiFi mobile app, you can also check the status of the Smart WiFi Router and its services. And if there is any incident, you have the option of communicating it to Movistar experts from the application itself.
Tips to optimize the WiFi network and get the most out of your connections
An important decision you must make to get a good WiFi signal is to decide where you are going to place the Smart WiFi Router. Ideally, it should be centrally located in your home. In addition, you should place it as high as possible, so that the WiFi signal spreads well in all directions.
With the Smart WiFi Router, you have the possibility of accessing two different bandwidths. Another way to optimize the received signal is to connect to the 2.4 GHz network, which has the name “Movistar”, all the devices that do not need a lot of bandwidth. And leave the 5 GHz network, called “Movistar_Plus”, for devices that require higher bandwidth.
Also, you can pause the connection of your router devices when you are not using them, from the Smart WiFi mobile app, and thus obtain a greater amount of bandwidth.
Boost your connections and expand the signal of your router with the Smart WiFi 6 Amplifier
If the signal from the router does not reach all the corners of your home, you can extend it using the Smart WiFi 6 Amplifier to obtain a better connection. With this device, you will have a speed of up to five times higher than the previous model (reaching 4 Gbps), and up to 30% more coverage. In addition, it has the capacity to support greater simultaneous data traffic and provides you with more security, thanks to the WPA3 protocol. It is currently sold out, but if you want to be the first to know when it is available again, sign up here.
