AMAZON Fire TV Stick users could be missing out on a better TV experience by making a Wi-Fi mistake.
The tech giant gives several pieces of Wi-Fi advice on its website.
This includes a tip that may leave you wanting a new internet gadget.
Amazon says, “Upgrade to a Wi-Fi 6E or higher Wi-Fi generation capable router.
“For larger homes, consider mesh routers for whole home coverage.”
It adds, “Configure the router to serve the same network name (SSID) for 2.4 GHz, 5 GHz, and 6 GHz band.
“This will allow the Fire TV device to automatically connect to the best performing band available based on signal strength from the Wi-Fi router.”
If you’re unsure whether your router is providing Wi-Fi 6E, try checking it or the box it came in.
A router that says 802.11ax (or Wi-Fi 6) means it’s likely quite new and should be offering you a good service.
Wi-Fi 6 compatible routers offer a max speed of around 9.6 Gbps.

It’s not necessarily a bad sign if you see a different figure on your router.
The device may still be suitable for your home network and you only really need to upgrade when you start experiencing issues.
It can be a bad sign if you see the figure 802.11a/b/g on your router.
This figure indicates an old router that could be replaced.
The issue with routers like this is that they provide a single frequency.
That means it will be slower and prone to congestion, which can affect the streaming abilities of your Amazon Fire TV Stick.
