How many devices are connected to your home Wi-Fi network?

If I asked you how many devices are connected
to your home Wi-Fi network, could you tell me? Most people couldn’t. But the answer could
have an impact on your Internet performance. Hi, I’m Mr. Noobie and today I want to help
you answer the question, how many devices are connected to your home Wi-Fi network? The day you first activated your Wi-Fi network
in your house, you probably connected your laptop or your smartphone to it. But over
time, you may have connected more and more devices. Perhaps you connected another laptop, other
family member’s smartphones, your iPad or other tablet and maybe a wireless printer.
Then your kids got an iPod touch or a Nintendo DS or a new game system like the Xbox, Playstation
or the Wii. Or what about that new television or Blu-ray
player that connects to your Wi-Fi for smart apps or additional movie content? Or that
fun, new Amazon Echo you just purchased. Even those smart home devices like security
cameras or the ones that help you turn your lights on and off remotely may be using your
Wi-Fi connection. As you can see, it may be difficult to assess
just how many devices are using your home Wi-Fi network. An easy solution is to install
an app on your smartphone that will scan your wireless network and tell you how many devices
are actively connected to it. I use a free app called Fing which is available for both
iOS and Android. You can download the Fing app by visiting If
you don’t have a smartphone or tablet, Fing has a desktop version available as well for
both Mac and PC. Armed with the Fing app’s report of how many
devices are connected to your network, you now have a couple of choices. If your Wi-Fi
network is already performing up to your expectations, you may not need to do anything. But if you
think you are having Wi-Fi performance issues, disconnecting older devices that you no longer
use or that no longer need access to your Wi-Fi network may help. You may also discover that you don’t want
to disconnect any devices from your Wi-Fi network and that having your Internet Service
Provider assess your current Internet package or even upgrade to a faster Internet package
is the best solution. The goal is to use the app to assist you in the decision process. This tech tip has been brought to you by XFINITY.
