Many of us are compelled to work from the comfort of our own homes during the lockdown, making it more important than ever to maximize our productivity in the comfort of our own environments. A quiet place to work (away from the kids and the television!) and a reliable internet connection are also required. 

If you need to hold video conferences with your colleagues and clients, your productivity may suffer if your internet connection is too slow. This is especially important if your children are doing schoolwork or viewing movies on Netflix while at home. 

Now, the question is what you can do to get the most out of your online experience. If you want to finish your tasks sooner, consider these recommendations by Electrician Lane Cove. 

Install Cables 

You will get the most out of your high-speed Internet connection if you have data cabling installed in your home. These days, WiFi is widely used since it enables simultaneous internet access for several users in a single location. This is not the most time-efficient option, though. 

In order to give people access to faster speeds, data wiring might be installed in every room where they need to connect. Even if you don't want to go that route, you can still get the quickest possible internet connection by hooking up your computer directly to the modem or router. 

Transform the Router's Current Location into a More Optimal One 

WiFi requires careful consideration on where to position the router for optimal performance. Because of that, you shouldn't put it away in a drawer. The speeds your router is capable of will vary greatly depending on a variety of factors, including the strength of the signal and the obstacles in its path (such as walls and doors). Having more room all the way around it is ideal. Place it as close as possible to the rest of your internet-connected gadgets. 

Invest on a High-Quality Router 

The alternative is to update to a better router, which is a relatively cheap but potentially game-changing improvement that can have a dramatic effect on your internet's speed. Choose one that works in tandem with repeaters to ensure coverage across your home. 

Lessen the Amount of Connected Equipment 

You could reduce the number of networked PCs and other devices. A slowdown in your internet speed is conceivable if you have several devices connected to the internet but only a few that are actively being used (like smart speakers). 

It's best to plug in as many gadgets as possible to your ethernet connection and to unplug those you aren't using right now. To get the most out of your network connection, prioritise your work laptop, as many routers allow you to do. 

Make sure your WiFi is secure. 

If you don't password-protect your WiFi network, other people can join in and slow things down for you. Make up a strong password for the account and remember to use it. In this way, you won't have to choose between network speed and security.
