Bad network 😞️

How do we increase network speed? Here's not like on Windows where we could change wireless card settings such as Transmit/Receive buffers and Scan valid interval. On my laptop downloads speed using Firefox floats between about 500 Kb/s and 1 Mb/s :flushed:. And I never changed any network setting.

You can try a few tweaks and tips to increase network speed:

When was the last time you rebooted your router? This is essentially a low power computer, managing network communications. In order to refresh the router, you should reboot it twice a month (the admin software may have a way to schedule reboots).

Ok, I see it, on my router settings there's a section to do it, but does it reset settings that I changed?

Like a computer, it saves the configuration to a file. Any time you make a change to the router, it restarts the service, a soft reboot. That is so the changes can be implemented, since the routing service runs completely from ram. So to answer your question, yes the changes on the router will be saved.
