Do you ever wonder why your home internet connection is unstable or slow? You’re not alone! Common home internet problems result in sluggish or uneven performance, affecting many households. The good news is that you can solve these problems by following specific fixes. 


In this article, we'll talk about some of the most typical problems with home internet connections and offer some insightful tips to help you strengthen your connection. No matter your internet connection, these tips will help you get the most out of your network so you can resume using a fast and dependable internet connection. Let's begin!



  • WiFi Network Disappears Entirely


Your wireless network might not appear on the list of available networks from the system menu for various reasons. One of the reasons is that your wireless hardware may malfunction or switch off. Ensure that it is turned on. Another reason is you might be outside the network's coverage area.


If the network does not immediately appear in the list, try moving closer to the wireless base router. It takes some time for the list of wireless networks to be updated. Wait a few minutes and then check whether the network has appeared in the list if you just powered on your computer or relocated to a new place.



  • Connections Drop at Random Times.


Connection drops at random times can be a frustrating experience for any internet user, especially if you are in the middle of watching your favorite movies on some major streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, and Sling TV


Fortunately, by doing a few simple actions, you can spot the issue and resolve it. Prior to double-checking your modem's connection and operation, make sure to check your wires. You can reboot your modem or router in addition to your connection.


If the issue persists, a WiFi extender can assist by strengthening your connection and boosting your signal. You might also need to relocate your modem or router to acquire the best signal strength.



  • Device Can’t Connect to The Wi-Fi


With one specific device, you can occasionally experience WiFi problems. It's likely a minor network issue that can be resolved. Try disabling and reenabling your device's WiFi or unplugging and replugging your WiFi adapter. If it doesn’t work, restart the device and try again.


You should also consider removing your current network from the list of stored networks on your device, then reconnecting if that is ineffective or if the issue reappears.



  • Connected to Wifi, But No Internet Connection


If you're experiencing this problem, the router may be the issue rather than your device. Check the router's lights to see if it is connected to the internet first. If the light with the antenna symbol is not green or is blinking irregularly, the router is not connected. It indicates that although it is carrying out its task, the signal it sends is useless. That can usually be fixed by restarting your router. 



  • Wi-Fi Disconnection in Some Rooms or Areas at Home


The disconnection issue arises when your mobile device is outside the WiFi coverage. Due to improper WiFi router installation at home, some locations are experiencing disconnections. 

To fix the problem, relocate the WiFi access point to the center of the room, where any room distance might be equal. Your desktop WiFi router will not suffice if your home is too big for your router’s coverage capacity. You can get a long-range, high-power access point to ensure the signal is vital in all areas.

Keep in mind that the quality of WiFi is greatly influenced by the internet providers available in your area. Ask about the coverage map provided by your provider to determine your location. You can see on the map the areas they serve and the range between various points and their central tower. Choose a provider that is near your area, as the quality of the internet improves with proximity.


  • Wi-Fi Authentication Problem


While connecting a computer or a mobile device, you must ensure the WiFi password is correctly entered to resolve the WiFi authentication issue. To fix it, log in to the WiFi router first, then select Wireless settings. See the WiFi password setup. After that, you can modify the WiFi password and try connecting from a mobile device again.

Final Thoughts

It is not necessary to be an expert in networking to resolve a WiFi and internet issue at home. Six of the most frequent Wi-Fi and internet issues can be fixed using only basic methods and without spending any money. By following the instructions above, you may fix any WiFi or internet issues in your house without having to make any sacrifices. Good luck!
