Is your Wifi network connection the problem?
The cause of the problem could be your Wifi network connection and not the Reeth Rural Radio Net broadband internet connection.
You can rule out the wireless network network being the cause of the problem by connecting your PC directly to the Reeth Rural Radio Net broadband router using an ethernet cable and run the Reeth Rural Radio Net speedtest again.
If performance improves when you are connected using a network cable then this proves that the issue could be with the Wifi connection setup.
Possible things to investigate are:
- Are the WiFi channels you are using for your Wi-Fi network network (SSID) overlapping with the neighbors?
- Could the Wi-Fi network signal from the router be obstructed?
- Does the performance improve when your are stood directly in-front of the Reeth Rural Radio Net broadband or wireless router?
Who is connected to my Wi-Fi network?
Have you checked that your Wifi network password has not been compromised? Do you have an un-secured Guest Wi-Fi network?

Do I need a Wifi Booster for my Reeth Rural Radio Net broadband?
If you find that you have Wi-Fi black holes in your home, then a Wifi extender aka a Wi-Fi Booster is the fix to boost your signal. They are readily available online from around £15.
The Wi-Fi network booster simply picks up your existing Wifi signal as it is starting to become weak and then re-transmits the wireless network signal at a more stronger rate to extend it’s coverage.
Place the Wifi network booster/extender where your Wifi network signal from the Reeth Rural Radio Net broadband router is becoming weak. Approxiametly where your wireless network signal drops down to two bars. Use your mobile phone to determine where this is.
