If You’ve Been Struggling With Your Internet While WFH, Your Modem Might Be The Problem

As we all shelter-in-place and navigate the new epoch of work life, a well-behaved, highly efficient modem is a non-negotiable.

Now that many of us have been WFH for a few months, you may have been facing some serious struggles with your internet connection.

Often, the problem actually comes from the modem itself. But luckily, there are a few things you can do to make the situation a little better for yourself.

1. First of all, having a modem with lightning speed is paramount. If you've had your modem for many years, you might be in need of an upgrade.

2. Position your modem in an uncovered area where the signal can travel without interruption.

3. Similarly, try not to place the modem near dense, obstructive objects that may interfere with its signal.

4. Make sure you're not physically too far from the modem. The further you are from it, the more unreliable the connection and its output can become.

5. If you living in a high-density area or apartment building, there's a chance other modems might be interfering with yours.

6. Consider using an ethernet cable to keep your service interruptions to a minimum.

7. If your internet is slow, you probably need to troubleshoot the modem. Get an understanding of your modem's lights and what they mean.

8. And finally, if worse comes to worst, find a modem with a 4G backup mode to safeguard your internet activity and step in when needed.

The Optus NBN Ultra WiFi Modem will give you instant internet access and is a cinch to set-up. It boasts the most reliable NBN connection for home usage and has an inbuilt, trusty 4G back up — meaning you'll constantly have access to the internet while Optus work to resolve a fault or outage on your fixed line.
