People are just now realizing a simple Wi-Fi trick that will instantly speed up your internet
SOMETIMES the simplest solutions are the most effective.
And when it comes to your broadband, there’s a super simple trick that might work for you if you’re having speed issues.
Some people may have already tried this when the service goes down.
But others may not realize that it could also be the cure for everyday slowdowns.
As Virgin Media explains, the first thing you should always do is simply turn your router on and off again.
“If your broadband is lagging, our first advice is…to cycle your Virgin Media hub,” the company says.
“We know it’s not the most technical ‘hack’, but sometimes the simplest solutions are the most effective!”
So if you’ve noticed your internet speed getting slow, turn the power button on the back on and off.
Or just turn the plug on and off.
Wait about 10 seconds before reapplying power to your router.
And you may have to wait up to ten minutes for the service to fully restart.
Don’t forget that the location of your broadband router can also make a difference.
Here are some of the weirdest places people have put their box.
