Performance is heavily dependent on your internet connection. 100 Mbps is the minimum recommended speed, but your experience will benefit from a faster connection.

Sharing your Internet connection with streaming services like Netflix, online gaming services, and peer-to-peer file sharing services will significantly decrease Remote Labs performance.

  1. Please confirm that the WiFi signal is strong enough on your tablet/phone. Sometimes a weak WiFi signal can cause the connection to be dropped. Try to move your tablet/phone closer to the router to see if there is any improvement.
  2. If you are connecting via 3G/4G, or via the hot spot of your phone, sometimes the signal appears to be strong, but you never know how many users might be sharing the same bandwidth around you. In this case, we suggest that you try during a different time of day, or connect to a different (stronger) WiFi if possible, to see if there is any improvement.
  3. If your WiFi is using 5 Ghz instead of 2.4 Ghz, it might be more susceptible to losing the connection, due to the limitation of the shorter transmitting distance. Please try 2.4 Ghz to see if there is any improvement.
  4. If your router supports the QoS option (Quality on Service, an option to limit bandwidth usage for each connection thread), please try to turn OFF the QoS option to see if there is any improvement.
