It could be that your modem is placed too far from your Ignite Entertainment box, resulting in a poor WiFi connection. For the best experience, make sure your modem is:
- Upright (i.e. with the angled top side pointing towards the ceiling)
- In open, plain sight
- In a well-ventilated location to prevent overheating (i.e., on a hard surface above floor level)
- As far away as possible from barriers that would block or degrade WiFi signal -- at least a foot away
- Away from other sources of WiFi noise or interference (e.g., electrical panels, cordless phones, baby monitors, WiFi access points or routers for other services like home security, wireless speakers or smart devices)
Keep in mind, the modem is the source of your WiFi signal, so its placement is crucial for the most optimal connection for all your devices.
The location of your Ignite Entertainment box also matters. Make sure it’s not wedged behind the TV, a brick wall or other electronics and barriers for the strongest WiFi signal.
Tip: If possible, connect the Ignite Entertainment box to your modem with an Ethernet cable. It’s the most reliable connection for any device and eliminates the many variables affecting WiFi communication.
