In this blog post, we are offering a plethora of ways you can troubleshoot your internet service and make it run smoothly so that you remain connected all the time!

First Off, Inspect Your Internet Speed

It is a known thing that humans have the capacity to exaggerate things, make something out of nothing, and doubt everything when in distress – so before panicking about your internet service, get a concrete report of whether your internet is actually slower than usual or is it just your suspicion.

Once you are sure that your internet speed is actually slower than what your plan offers, follow the troubleshooting tips provided in this blog.

See if the Issue Is With the Device/Website or the Network

It is super probable that the internet issue you are facing may just be a device/website issue. So, before jumping ships and making an abrupt decision about your internet service, see if all the connected devices to the network are getting the same, slow speeds.

You can also check if the website you are trying to load is the one creating the ripples. If so, enable your VPN and try accessing it again – some domains may not be operational on your IP address. Other times, the very domain might be facing a downtime.

Just Reboot Your Modem and Router

Simple yet effective.

Just like a morning walk in a park reboots your mind and soul, a simple reboot can breathe new life into your internet devices.

The reboot refreshes the memory of your modem and router and resets all the procedures for better functionality.

Most of the time, you will be able to get rid of all the technical issues with this straightforward step.

Inspect Your Wi-Fi Settings

Check if you are connected to the right network. At times, your device can pick up signals from another network, so it is just safe to make sure you’re on your own Wi-Fi network.

Reentering your password might work its way up as well.

In the event that you are connected to your network and still experiencing internet issues, have Windows identify the problem.

  • Go to the network icon visible in the Taskbar and right-click on it.
  • Select ‘Troubleshoot problems’ and let Windows run a Diagnostic routine.

Another approach is to go to the Control Panel > Network and Sharing Center and inspect your network adapter settings to ensure that all the settings, including the gateway address, are correct.

Cancel Out All Background Apps and Devices

Have you installed a new PS5 at home?

Adding new devices to your network can build up tensions in it that lead to slow internet speeds. To address this, you can consider two things:

  • Get an internet plan that serves all your devices and online activities
  • Switch off all unnecessary devices and background apps to manage a steady internet speed

If you are a keen internet user and indulge in highly intensive online activities, you might want to consider opting for a symmetric internet plan.

Position Yourself Within the Wi-Fi Signal Range

Contrary to popular belief, wireless connectivity also requires proximity. You need to be in the required signal range to access the internet seamlessly.

The closer you are to the wireless access point, the better your signal quality.

Not only this but it is also recommended to place your router at a higher plane so that the wireless signals are not impeded on account of any physical obstruction.

Contact Your Internet Service Provider

You might be experiencing issues with your internet because of your ISP.

  • Unclear payment dues
  • Area-wise internet outages
  • Maintenance or recovery of internet service at your ISP’s end

These are some of the reasons that could be affecting your internet connectivity. Communicating with your ISP poses really well in either case as it provides you with the best way forward.
