Alliance Communications offers lightning-fast Internet speeds over a 100% fiber-optic network, but if your Wi-Fi router is out of date or not set up correctly, it could be slowing you down. Here are some tips to help you maximize router performance and enjoy the Internet speed you ordered:
• Upgrade your router. If your household has several people each with a computer, phone, and tablet plus there's a gaming console, your entry-level router's capacity might be exceeded. A home network with this much online activity warrants upgrading your router. Alliance offers an easy solution with the Router Support Plan.
• Move your router to its ideal position. Keep your router centrally located and away from thick walls made of brick or concrete, water, and windows.
• Make sure your router is secure. Putting a password on your router or limiting which devices can access your network will keep other people from using your network and slowing it down.
If you need a new router or have questions about your Wi-Fi network, dial 611 from any phone with Alliance service or call (605) 582-6311 from your cell phone.
