Running out of Wi-Fi on Mac? The problem could be your headphones

Running out of Wi-Fi on Mac

Perhaps you have had some other problem with the connection of your Wi-Fi network while using some headphones with bluetooth connectivity. If you thought that the problem could be with the router or with the Wi-Fi network itself, perhaps you were wrong. And it is that perhaps you did not know it, but wireless headphones can be the cause of your Wi-Fi network not working as it should. In this post we tell you how you can solve it.

Although it is not the most common, all computers can have problems with the Wi-Fi connection. Nowadays both the network and the computers are quite secure and rarely generate failures in these aspects. And it is that many times it has nothing to do with the network or with the computer, but with the peripherals that are used, among which may be wireless headphones. You may not know it, but bluetooth can interfere with the connection to the Wi-Fi network. If you are connected to a 2.4 GHz wifi, or bluetooth connectivity, it can interfere and cause connection failures.

Possible solutions to this error

After having detected that the problem may be with the bluetooth connection of your wireless headphones, there are several things you can do to solve the problem. The first is to change the Wi-Fi connection. Today it is very common for Internet companies to offer two types of networks, one 2.4GHz and one 5GHz. Check the connections and make sure you are connected to the 5GHz network, which in addition to not interfering, will go faster than the other option you have available.

If after doing this you still have problems, restart the Mac. It is a more than usual option to solve any problem you may have. If after the restart the Mac connects normally with the WiFi, you will already know that it has been a failure that does not have to give more incidents, unless it happens to you very often, that is, to have WiFi you have to be restarting the computer continuously. If you have an iPhone nearby, try connecting your Mac to your iPhone so you can get Internet. If it works without problems, the problem may be with the Wi-Fi.

Another option you can try is to disable all external devices that you have connected to both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. This could be because there are some devices that connect to USB and emit certain wireless signals that can interfere with our own Wifi. That is why it is important to remove them one by one and immediately check the signal.

If these solutions have not been successful, you can try restarting the headphones. Perhaps the problem you are facing lies with them and not with the Wi-Fi connectivity, so make sure they are working properly. To check this, connect the headphones to other devices nearby. If they connect correctly with everyone but not with the Mac, perhaps the problem is something more serious than it may seem at first and you may have to take the Mac to a specialized service.
