What is wifi and speed test?

Wifi is a form of wireless technology that enables you to connect to the internet. You can use it to connect any of your devices to the internet – smartphones, tablets, gaming consoles, PCs, etc.

Wifi is a radio signal sent from your home-installed router to the connected device. This signal is transformed into data and enables you to access the internet. Usually, most people connect to the internet by using a wifi password.

Speed test helps the users know the wifi connection’s speed. The report includes the download and upload speed, along with ping.

  1. Go to the settings page of your smartphone.
  2. Now, move over to the network and internet page from there.
  3. Navigate into the wifi settings and open the advanced options page.
  4. You will see an option here that states something like ‘Connect via WPS’. Proceed to select it.
  5. Now the WPS protocol is activated.
  6. You will see a new dialogue box on the screen, which will instruct you to press the WPS button on your router.
  7. Make sure you push the WPS button within 30 seconds, or else the handshake protocol will deactivate.
  8. After your press the button, your phone will be connected to the wifi network without needing the password.
