How to enhance wi-fi performance of airport extreme?
My Airport Extreme is working with Time Warner Cable Modem. Everything is going fine but recently I am experiencing sluggish Wi-Fi performance from my Airport Extreme. To fix this issue, I have reset my Apple router but this also goes in vain. Is there any way to enhance the router performance? Help me!
Apply these tips to enhance Wi-Fi performance of Airport Extreme -
Change Wireless Channel
First of all, change the channel on your Apple router. See how -
Connect your Mac to Airport Extreme and launch the Airport Utility application.
After this, go to the main screen and press a click on “Airport Extreme” option.
Next, tap on Wireless > Wireless Options.
After this, select a wireless channel and save your settings.
In the present time, the router can broadcast 2.4 GHz and 5Ghz frequency. You have to do one thing i.e, just figure out which frequency is giving you a high internet speed. Although 5Ghz signals have high bandwidth and this is the main reason it is faster than 2.4Ghz. I have also illustrated the difference through image.
Lower the RTS Threshold value
If there are multiple access point on the same channel then lower down RTS Threshold value. You can set RTS threshold value to 0 in Apple routers.
For security concerns, use "WPA 2 Personal" security only. In Apple routers, advanced encryption is needed otherwise anyone can hack your network.
Give above tips a try and let me know if you need further help. If your problem does not resolve by applying above procedures then call at Apple Router Technical Support Number.
