Internet connection is essential for more and more activities. If before we could spend hours using our iPhone locally with just some exchange of messages or something similar, now the vast majority of actions go through the network. Therefore, having sufficient speed and a stable connection is essential. It is not like this? We have resources and solutions about it.
Several steps that we can take in order to avoid slow Wi-Fi
When we talk about the speed of Wi-Fi connections, which are usually very stable, there are several things to take into account. The first is that for higher speed we must approach the router. The second is to avoid interference of a metallic nature, such as radiators, refrigerators or even televisions. If we are close to the router and we continue to see a speed that is too low, this is what we can do.
Reboot the router. Whenever this is an option, it’s a good idea to turn off or unplug your router from power, wait 5-10 seconds, and plug it back in. After allowing up to 3 minutes for it to turn on and establish a connection, our speed on the iPhone should be up to snuff.
Reboot the iPhone. A basic resource to go to. We turn off our iPhone, wait 5 or 10 seconds and turn it back on.
Forget the net. If the connection between the iPhone and the network has an error, it is interesting to be able to “delete” that connection and re-establish it. This is what we get when we forget a particular network. For this we open the app settingswe came in Wifiwe touch the “i” to the right of the network in question and touch forget this network. Then we select it again, enter the password and check the connection.
Reset network settings. We now enter the resources with a little more depth. If after these three operations the Wi-Fi connection is still too slow on our iPhone, while other devices enjoy maximum speed on the same network, it is a good idea to restore the network settings.
To do this we will simply open the app settings we will enter Generalwe will play in Transfer or reset iPhonewe will play in restore and we will choose Reset network settings. Then we must re-enter the network password and check the connection.
Other ways to speed up slow internet on iPhone
Change DNS settings. Last resource. DNS servers play a fundamental role in connections. If the ones configured in the router have stopped responding or do so very slowly, it is a good idea that we can change them directly on our iPhone.
The process is simple. We enter the app settingswe played in Wifiwe touch the “i” to the right of the network that interests us, we enter DNS settings and we choose Manual. From here we can touch on Add server to add what we want. A good choice is the 22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199 from CloudFlare. When we finish we play Keep.
With this, our iPhone should enjoy maximum speed —and also maximum privacy thanks to iCloud Private Relay, if we wish— of Wi-Fi connection. If not, we must now consider talk to our operator or, if our iPhone is the only device that registers a low speed on that network, talk directly with Apple.
