WiFi Networks in Tunbridge Wells

Poor WiFi can be frustrating. DHTech will scan your network and identify the reason(s) for dead spots in your home, such as the position of your WiFi router or your signal conflicting with other nearby signals. We can look at all the WiFi channels in your local neighbourhood and determine if you are on the right channel.

There are many options to improve WiFi performance, including network extenders, access points and power plug adapters. DHTech can advise on, supply and install the necessary equipment to resolve your issues.

 2.4Ghz & 5Ghz Bands

Most equipment made in the past few years will be compatible with both 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz; it’s worth checking that your current router can support these bands as they will greatly enhance your WiFi connections. The 2.4Ghz band is an all-rounder and can support speeds of 600mbps (depending on the router), but it can get very congested and suffer interference from other electronic equipment, including phones and baby monitors. The 5Ghz band is much clearer and can support speeds up to 1300mbps, but it doesn’t have as much range as 2.4Ghz.

WiFi Security

The security of your network and personal data is very important; we make sure you have the best encryption available on your router. DHTech can check that you have security enabled and configure the best setting to help prevent unauthorised access to your broadband and computers.

WiFi Troubleshooting

Slow broadband can be the results of many issues, such as missing filters and faulty cabling. DHTech can test and troubleshoot your system to get the best possible speed. It is always worth checking your broadband provider’s website for a line speed test: the link below is for BT phone lines, just enter your telephone number and post code and it will give an indication of what your telephone line is capable of.

BT Line Speed Test

You can’t expect the same speed on a WiFi device as on a computer directly connected to a router via Ethernet cable. WiFi speed will also depend on the capabilities of your device.

WiFi Scanning Service

DHTech offers a cost-effective WiFi scanning service which suggests ways to improve your signal. We use a powerful dual-band spectrum analyser that measures WiFi and non-WiFi activity in both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands. It uses radio frequency (RF) data to provide you with a real-time visual overview of your WiFi network environment. Apps on smart devices don’t offer the entire RF range, so they don’t give a clear picture of what’s causing interference.
