Why can't I connect via Wi-Fi with my Asus laptop?

Episode 1151 (1:31:16)

Matthew from Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Matthew is having Wi-Fi problems with his Asus laptop. His router isn't all that great though, and Leo has a hunch that the router is the culprit. It also may be that there's a lot of congestion by other Wi-Fi signals in the neighborhood.

Leo recommends using INSSIDER, a Wi-Fi analyzer that could tell him the best channel to use and show him how congested everything is. Also, the farther away he is from his router, the more issues he'll have as well. If he can go with 5GHz, he may have a better chance because it isn't used as much. Leo recommends getting a better router or a range extender. Powerline networking may also be an option.
