How to restart your modem and/or router?
This is as easy as pulling the power adapter out from the equipment and plugging it back in after a short time. Restarting your equipment can revert it to whats called a known good state.

Your Wi-Fi performance decreases the farther away a device is from the source (typically a router) or if there are multiple devices utilizing the medium at the same time.
