Distance from the modem. A WiFi dead zone might be primarily because that spot is too far from the internet modem. Remember that a standard 2.4GHz WiFi router can bring decent connection to a device in an indoor space from a distance of 46 meters. Beyond that, the WiFi connection will undoubtedly be weaker and slower. One thing to do to solve this issue is to expand your router’s signal, especially if you’re residing in a big house.

Signal-blocking devices. Objects in your home like furniture, decorations, and household appliances can block signals from your routers, as well as concrete walls, microwave ovens, and LED lights. To avoid this, place your router in a space that’s away from potential signal-blocking devices.
