Hello Harold, if your Airport Extreme WiFi performance is too sluggish then try these methods to speed up your awful WiFi network -

Disconnect unwanted devices -

If there are too many devices are connected to your Airport Extreme WiFi network then definitely your will experience connectivity issues and this is the main reason your Airport Extreme is working slow. Under such circumstances, disconnect some of the devices and you can also add another router for optimal performance.

In various routers, RTS (request to send) is available which we can modify. RTS settings are specially designed to sort out the nuisances that occur with multiple access point on the same channel. Lower the RTS threshold value until you get the desired outcomes. You can also set RTS threshold value as “0”.

Opt for toughest encryption -


For security prospects, it is recommended to protect your device with the toughest encryption. It is suggested by experts to use “WPA2” as an encryption method because it has the advanced encryption standard that is required for a fast internet network.

Figure out frequency -

To improve your router’s performance, you need to figure out frequency. By lowering frequency value, you can improve network reach and reliability. Apple Airport Extreme routers have dual-band mode which means they can broadcast 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz at the same time.
