Routers, The little computer that we take for granted. Recently I had a significant reduction of my internet speed. I connect my primary computer wirelessly and have always experienced a good hi-speed connection. Upon checking, I found that my computer had connected to the slower 2.4GHz rather than the faster 5.0GHz. I reset the connection to the faster 5GHz but was still experiencing slower speeds. Next I rebooted my terminal (HN modem) yet still the performance was not there. Finally, (feeling like a dummy) I rebooted my router. Everything was back to normal. I had forgotten that the first thing to do was to REBOOT the ROUTER. I know gamers who reboot their routers everyday. (It's a competitive thing) I'm not saying that this is the solution to everyone's problem but before you blame it on something else, do your housekeeping.
