Unless you love playing with that Dinosaur, you will want to get rid of that while facing a poor internet connection. Eventually, the dinosaur is so popular that even a kid knows when there is a problem with Internet connection. Out of the millions of other technical glitches, a slow internet connection is the most troublesome. Probably there is no internet connection at all and you are wondering there is still a ray of sunshine. Sometimes a slow internet indeed resolves all by itself. However, it is not always the same.
Troubleshooting a connection related problem is easy when you know the cause. You may have had a change in location or connected a new device with the home network. Well, these are just the common ones. But the problem arises when the causes are complex and difficult to detect. You can resolve certain connectivity errors on your own. But for the ones that go beyond your control, expert assistance is always the right way.
Who are the Culprits?
For any problem with internet connection, you can directly blame your device and also the wireless router. Any device can face no internet connection if there is no successful connection established between the device and the wireless router. Router sided issues could be vast. It is difficult for a person without technical knowledge to grasp the problem. Some of the common router related problems include:
- An outdated hardware
- Buggy firmware
- Weak signal strength
- Damaged cables
- Old infrastructure
- Overcrowded network
The chances of facing any router related problems are rare. However, it is still a good idea to check the same to detect any malware issues on your router. On the other hand, if you are facing a device-related problem, you will come across error messages like “internet not working” or “no internet connectivity”.
Try your hands
The first thing you do when you face a problem with internet connection is to connect the device once again. It’s good! Before you get your hands soiled with major operations, it is wise to check back the preliminary steps. You can also,
- Check whether the router is switched on and plugged in.
- Try visiting multiple websites. Sometimes you come across specific websites that do not open at all.
- Try connecting other devices with the home network.
- Consider restarting the device.
- Check whether the airplane mode is on or off.
- Check your monthly subscriptions.
Still, facing a problem with Internet Connection?
Did the above procedures fail to establish a connection? Do you still find your internet not working? Well, that brings us to two other methods. First, switch to a wired network and second repositioning the device or router.
Switch to a wired Network
Are you using a wireless network? Perhaps, this could be the reason for a problem with internet connection. The majority of the routers support wired networks as they have an Ethernet port. Switch to the wired network. Sometimes the router or device is unable to set up a connection due to the wireless network. With a cabled network you can once again establish a strong internet connection.
Repositioning the Router/Device
In a particular area, there are places with strong signals and weak signals. Assuming that you are using the device at your home, consider repositioning them. This will ensure that a strong connection is established between the device and the router. Perhaps your devices are in the weak signal zones.
Do not unscrew the router to detect any mechanical problem. This may end the life of your router completely. Before you consider doing any such thing, consider contacting our experts at 1 877-778-8740. Who knows they can fix the problem with a single command!
Understanding the Router Lights
If you are working with a router, it is essential to understand what the different lights in the modem indicate. You will find different lights displayed in the router with separate labels. The labels depend on the model you use. The probable light signals include,
- Wireless light
- Ethernet Light(for wired connections)
- Send/Receive links
- Ready/Service/Connect lights
The above indications are mentioned as per the general order. When you find the last light stream (ready/service/connect) of lights solid, it means the connection is good. However, when you find it blinking or gone, it indicates a problem with the connection.
How to Establish a Healthy Network?
A healthy network indicates that there is no problem with internet connection. It means you are getting fast and undisrupted internet services. It is difficult to predict when and where you might lose internet connectivity. Not every place will have equal network coverage. It is also possible that it is a setup related problem.
A new device takes time to configure itself with the new network. If that is the case, you need to bear with the new device or router and let them get accustomed to the new atmosphere. However, this time is not long. You can follow a few steps to troubleshoot internet connection. If that does not work, you probably need expert consultation and guidance.
Reset the Network
Go on to reset your network if you still find the dinosaur irritating you. Reset the network settings in the following way:
- Go to settings
- Network and Internet
- Network Reset
- Reset Now
When you reset your network, it removes all network adapters. As a result, your network gets back all its default settings. From here, you need to set up the connection all over again. In the process the chances of establishing a healthy connection are high. However, if the device is still unable to secure a connection, the device is likely a faulty one. For that, you need to contact your respective ISP provider.
The basics of all connectivity errors do not take time to get resolved. You can resolve some of the issues by yourself. Most of the steps mentioned above should resolve any connection related problems. However, remember that the internet could have glitches for millions of other reasons.
