Default bad phone reception

Please Login to Remove!

Just wondered if anyone can help

When I am connected to my wifi at home the reception on my phone is terrible and also my bb works like a snail.

Are there any settings I should change on my wifi router or on my bb.

Many thanks

I have noticed on some of the cheaper access points and routers that this sometimes happens. I get worse clarity on the wifi here at work than I do without it. We have several people connected to it and I think it is not giving me the QOS that the phone needs. We have another one at the other end of the building that works fine. One is just a cheap Netgear AP and the other is a higher end Netgear. The clear one has much better throughput in general.

Try connecting to another Wifi and see if it does it. If not get another router.
