The main factors that will impact the performance of your wireless connection are:

  • The amount of distance between your device and the WiFi access point.
  • Physical barriers, such as walls and floors, that the signal needs to travel through.
  • The number of devices connected.
  • The physical device that is receiving the signal. The device may not have the gain or output necessary to respond back to the access point from a certain distance.
  • The age of the device may influence the speed. More modern devices have increased capacity protocols.
