Sometimes this IP address is not the same for all the internet service provider. You must ask your service provider about it. When the login page is opened, you just have to login into your modem. Then, it will show you all the connected device to your wifi. If you see any device other than your devices. You should remove it and it will also allow you to block the device. We also recommend you to change the password of your wifi.
The other precautions you can take is that you can allow the MAC addresses of your device. Then, the devices with the allowed MAC addresses will only be connected to your wifi.
II. Close The Background Applications.
Unlike the above method, this method is for both the wifi users as well as mobile data. There are certain applications on our android phones which keep running in the background and using the internet. This can also slow your downloading speed to some extent. You need to kill these applications in order to increase the speed.
If there are some applications which use the data in the background. You can simply go to settings and then to applications. Here, you will be able to stop those applications. If you don’t use those applications. Then, we recommend you to uninstall those applications. This will not only optimize the speed of your internet and but also the performance of your phone.
III. Complain About Your Download Speed.
