Avoid Wi-Fi nightmares once and for all


Avoid Wi-Fi nightmares once and for all

EE has reported four laptop problems that may make it seem like your Wi-Fi is slow.

Run many apps at the same time

When you have a large number of apps open at the same time, your laptop works overtime.

So not only will your broadband seem slow, your computer will also struggle to load anything.

To fix the problem, simply close as many programs as possible and see if it makes a difference.

Not enough memory

To function smoothly, your laptop needs memory. This feature is called Random Access Memory (RAM).

The more RAM you have, the better.

Completion programs – as described above – will be helpful.

But you can also perform a disk cleanup.

Search for “Disk Cleanup” on your laptop and check all the boxes.

Then click Clean up system files.

Web browser add-ons

Web browser add-ons for apps like Chrome can be useful.

But they can also slow down your browser.

Consider removing any unnecessary files as you may notice a speed boost.

Too many apps are loaded at startup

Loading too many apps as soon as you start your laptop can also cause slowdowns.

Go into each app’s settings and disable its ability to load on startup.
