Always keep and remember the fact in mind that a strong home network is based upon the router placement. The Netgear experts always suggest you place your router in an open area i.e. the middle of your house, away from obstruction like metal appliances, electronic gadgets, Bluetooth speakers, treadmill, etc. and also from walls, windows, and those devices that carry the same frequency.

A well-placed router will minimize signal interference from those appliances that carry the same frequency. So in that case, place your router at the center of the home that will help you in reducing the risk of poor WiFi signals and spread its reach all over the house.

Consider changing Device default Network name and Password

If you didn’t change and continue using the default network name and password, then you are inviting an unknown person from your own hand to enter into your network and have full access to it.

Consider choosing a network name that would reveal your personal information and a password that would be enough strong for unknown person to track it. Also, remember that you have to share your password only with those, who are trustworthy to you and prefer changing it in every two or three months.
