Quick Computer Tip to Fix Your Internet Connection
Please Share With Social Media Groups By Copying From The Link Up
If you have just a modem, which is the device which connects you to the internet, unplug the power cord from the modem. The power cord for the modem is usually thin, black and has a circular connection end that plugs into the modem. Unplug it for 30 seconds.
Now plug your modem back in and restart your computer. Unplugging the modem clears the buffer. Restarting the computer does two things. It clears the cache and it gives the modem a chance to reconnect to the internet for impatient in home computer clients. An old trick to avoid explaining buffer build-up 😊.
If you have a WiFi router, which is a separate device to convert your wired internet access into wireless internet access, unplug your WiFi router at approximately the same time you unplug your modem. Plug your WiFi router in at approximately the same time as the modem. If you want to get real technical plug the modem in first.
This little trick works about 50% of time. If it doesn't work make sure your computer isn't in Airplane mode. That blocks internet access. If you still don't have internet access you have a software or hardware issue.
