Have you ever noticed that your wireless connection has much resemblance with the electricity?  I am saying this because they both are noticeable in the situation only when they are down. 

Well, you don’t need to panic anymore in this case. This article will help you in solving the biggest problems with your WIFI connection. Some main wireless connection problems with that I will highlight in this article are:

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

6.    Unsecured wireless connection

7.    Bandwidth Hogging

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.

To solve it in Windows OS open the commands prompt and then enter the following commands:



4) Lost WIFI Password:

Does it also happen with you that your device is connected to wireless connection but when any of your friends ask for its password you feel ashamed just because you don’t remember your 

WIFI password?

If anyone of your devices is still connected to that wireless network you can easily know its password. To do these follow these simple steps.

  1. From control panel open ‘network and internet’.
  2. Then clinking on ‘network connection’ you will see an option saying ‘WIFI’
  3. Right click on it and then click status
  4. A popup will appear. From there click on the button labeled wireless properties
  5. A window will get opened. Open the security tab. On that window, you will see 

    the password 

  2. Then click show characters to view your password.

If you need to get the password when you are on your android phone then you can do


it very easily using WIFI recovery app.

5) Wireless Connection Range Issues:

Do you want to extend the range of your wireless signal? Well, no one can deny the truth that a single router is capable of broadcasting the wireless signal to a limited distance.

But it is not impossible to increase its range. You can do it by using a range extender. This range extender is also referred to as a wireless repeater.

It works quite differently from that of a router although it looks a lot like the router. You should place it near your main router so that it could easily boost the signals.

You might be thinking, is it necessary to buy a wireless repeater of the same model as that of a router. Well, it is not much necessary.  You should go with the one that can easily boost your signals.

6) Unsecured Wireless Connection:

[image = Unsecured Wireless Connection.jpg]

Many of us assume that the wireless connection that we have set up in our homes is secured which is not true in most cases.

  • The connection using WPA or WEP  encryption mode is said to be secured. You can check this setting in the wireless network properties of the connection you are connected to.
  • One more thing. To make your wireless connection secure change its password. By default a password is set in your router if you are using the default one then you must change it immediately
  • You must avoid using public WIFI as it is not much secured. Mostly it is available for e-learning purposes in your educational institutions. So you must avoid logging into your on such WIFI to keep it safe.

7) Bandwidth Hogging:

It might happen that someone else is using your wireless connection and you don’t know how much of it are they consuming. You can easily monitor it using a bandwidth monitoring app. You can also use an online tool ‘networkx’ for this purpose.

Thus there are much more apps which can use to monitor the bandwidth consumption quite easily.

Final Thoughts:

I am pretty much sure that now you have been able to get rid of many of your wireless connection issues. You must also try rebooting your router. Rebooting solves many issues. If anyone of the above solution doesn’t work for you then I think it’s time for you to buy another router.
