So I’m living in a shared house and the wifi is ****ing horrible. If you’re lucky it pushes 6 mbps. Now i am a pretty big gamer. Online gaming is doable but right now i only play Fifa and the rest of games are story offline campaign games. Fifa is impossible to play online, other games are okay but i don’t really play anything else right now. I have tried wifi extensors and they do nothing. I have a LAN cable plugged into my ps4 which is what pushes it to 6mbps , without it’s like 3 or 4 mbps. Does anyone else have this problem? How do you get around it ? I mentioned it to my landlord but he doesn’t seem keen on going through with getting a new broadband. i must also mention that it’s not only gaming, it’s also affecting my studies as it takes around about 30 mins just to download a powerpoint and browsing the web for research is also carnage as each page takes between one to ten mins to load.

You can buy a Belkin router and place it in the room you need the wifi and it extends the signal to that room. Honestly its a game changer!

Did you arrange and purchase the wifi plan yourselves, or was that already done by the landlord prior to your arrival?

Their PS4 is already plugged directly into the router via ethernet, signal strength does not seem to be the issue here.

No the wifi was already here. All bills are inclusive and they’ve had this TP link router for years before i moved here

Have you connected a PC directly to the router via ethernet and performed a speed test?
