1. No/Weak WIFI signals in some parts of house
2. Some devices having issue in connecting to the wireless network
3. Connection dropout at random times
4. Loss WIFI password
5. Wireless connection range issues

Before explaining to you how to solve these issues I will let you know what WIFI is.
It is basically a network protocol through which you can connect your device to the internet wirelessly. You don’t need any internet cord to establish an online connection in this case.
No doubt it is the most popular means of connecting devices to the internet but it is observed that people face certain issues while using it. These issues are not permanent you can solve them by following some simple steps.
1) No/Weak WIFI Signals in Some Parts of House:
Such areas in your house that are covered with the WIFI but can’t have good WIFI signals are referred to as dead zones. You stop receiving signals on your devices when you enter such parts in your home.
The main cause of this dead zone is any interference with the WIFI radio signals.
This problem is very much common. To resolve this issue of WIFI dead zone checks your router position first. Try to place it in the middle of your house so that you may enjoy its signal in every part of your house.
Make sure you have updated your router firmware to the latest one available. To do this you will need to contact your ISP or the manufacturer of your router.
Also, make sure you don’t put it near your microwave as its wave would cause an interference with the wireless signals. Cordless phones can also cause an issue with the signals.
2) Some Devices Having Issue in Connecting To the Wireless Network:

First, check the devices that aren’t able to connect to the internet are using which protocol. Some other possible situation to this issue is:
- To connect to the wireless connection they should use the TCP/IP protocol and the settings to accept the DHCP assignment must be enabled on them.
- Another thing to check is MAC filtering.
- Also, check your hardware devices. Check them if they are working fine or not. Maybe the issue might be with the device and not with your wireless connection.
- Try connecting those devices at different times of the day. Your router might have some restrictions in connecting to a limited number of devices at a time.
- Disable the encryption.
- Change the SSID.
- Try to keep the SSID not more than 8 characters.
If any of the above solutions don’t work then you must reset your router.
3) Connection Dropout at Random Times:

Just imagine a scene in that you are resting on your couch with a cup of coffee and watching a movie on the internet then suddenly your WIFI connection goes down.
Just think for a while, you are enjoying a game using virtual reality environment and suddenly you see a blackout in front of your eyes. This is because you WIFI connections get down.
This unexpected dropping of wireless connection for no reason is very much painful.
Mostly your router and network card are responsible for this dropout. Some solutions to fix this issue are:
- You must try changing the channel of your router. Set your wireless network to a higher channel to get a good connection.
- Upgrade your drivers
- Open your Device Manager from the control panel. Then search for your network card. You will find in under network adapter. Double click on it to see whether there are any settings enabled that are responsible for shutting done your card abruptly.
- Perform a power cycle of your hardware. To do this shutdown all your hardware. These hardware devices include your modem, router, and your wireless device. Then switch them on. The first switch on your modem, then router and, in the end, your wireless device.
If you experience this dropout after every couple of second i.e. your wireless connection disconnects and then connects back again then the reason might be that your wireless device is searching for IP address and the DHCP server is unable to find it.
