When your WiFi is down, or its really slow – it can be maddening.
Most of the time, there is an easy fix, the tech name is called ‘re-booting’, but it really involves unplugging the router, letting it rest for a minute – then pluging it back in.
Generally, it takes a few minutes to come back online again – and most of the time – that’s all it takes!
The hard part? Finding your router!
- If you have a WiFi system in your home, and don’t know where the router is, look for a box that’s similar to the one pictured – it may be near a television, near a computer workstation, or hidden away in an electrical panel.
- It’s recognizable because it will have a series of lights on its front – often flashing
- Likeliest places to look: basement, television room, home office.
If after following the procedure described, you still do not have access to the internet, it’s likely time to call your cable company for tech support.
