Enable Guest Wi-Fi in Your Router
There are times when your friend will come over or you have to share your wireless internet with someone who is not going to use your internet for long time. Normally, we will share our wireless password which is not a secure way of doing it. We could use a feature called Guest Wi-Fi, when someone wanted to use your Wi-Fi for a while, then make sure enable Guest Wi-Fi instead of giving password of your real Wi-Fi and make sure setup strong password and it is different from your current Wi-Fi password. It is recommended to leave it off and only turn it one when a guest is coming over. This way they won't have an access to your entire network and access is limited to internet only and you could set some limitation like download usage and so on. You should take a note that you will need a router where it supports Guest Wi-Fi and it might not be available in all routers.
I have been using a tp-link brand router for over 2 years now. I have recently been experiencing a lot of lag times. When I checked my download speed, it was 104 when wired directly to the modem. Through the router,d it was only 42. I contacted tp-link and was told by them that their routers typically deliver only 40-50% of mbps. I find this very hard to believe. Any advise?

Home Network Issues
My home network, Wi-Fi based, lacks stability in that it often fails to present in File Explorer networked PCs I intend to access. When this happens, I have to leave the computer I am using to go to the target PC to perform what's needed. It's really a problem of inconsistency ("now you see me, now you don't"). Each PC is setup on the network by simply entering the password for AT&T gateway/modem, without creating any kind of homegroup or workgroup, etc., etc. Where am I going wrong? Is there a tried and true home network setup method that I can use to avoid this annoyance? Any help this community can provide would be greatly appreciated. By way of background, let me say this: System: Windows 10 Home, 64-bit Connectivity: Wi-Fi Number of Pcs: 6 Thanks. ca le

Place your wireless router in a central location. Place the router as close to the center of your home as possible to increase the strength of the wireless signal throughout your home. Position the wireless router off the floor and away from walls and metal objects, such as metal file cabinets.
