Tips for improving your internet connection
22 October 2014
Whether you need to use the internet for business or pleasure you will always want to make sure that you have a fast internet connection. Listening to a dial up tone, or watching the page load for what seems like forever can be extremely frustrating. You can avoid this slow process by following tips for improving your internet connection.
The first aspect that you need to take into consideration is what type of internet connection you have in place. Some connections are faster than others. The two big connection types are DSL and satellite internet. There is often a debate as to which one of these is actually faster. In most cases satellite internet will come out tops. This is largely due to the fact that more people around the world have access to this type of connection. It also has a faster download rate than that of DSL. In order to get a better, faster and more reliable connection you should first consider changing to satellite internet.
There are other common problems that people will experience when trying to connect to the internet, regardless of which connection they use. These tips will help you with even the most simple of issues:
- Upgrading your router: when people change to a new rooter they are often faced with a situation where it does not connect automatically. The best way to get around this is to unplug all of the cables for at least 30 seconds. You can then reconnect the cables to the broadband modem, then to the new router. Turn the router back on and you should find that you once again gain access to the internet.
- The software for the router doesn’t work: your new router will come with a software CD to install the router. Sometimes the CD cannot find or recognise the router. You can fix this by bypassing the setup. Go to your computers network settings, right click and select Properties of Local Area Connection, then highlight the Internet Protocol Version. From here you need to find the radio button and select “use the following IP address”. Simply type the IP address of your new router (you will find this in the documentation that comes with the router). You will need to change the last digit of the IP address of your router in order to create a new one. This will than match up your new router to the network.
These are two common problems that can be fixed if you follow the correct instructions. It is also important to remember that whether you are struggling with basic or more difficult issues it is often best to seek the advice of the professionals. There is nothing wrong with admitting defeat in order to make sure that you get your internet up and running quickly. It will also ensure that your internet connection is always a fast one.
