When you’re trying to get work done, you definitely want your computer to have reliable connection to the internet. Without a good connection, you may not be able to send and receive important emails, share documents with other employees, or other necessary daily tasks. This can bring your office’s productivity to a grinding halt. So, what can you do? Well, that’s what we’re going to be talking about today. Ready to learn more about connectivity issues and how you can solve them? Let’s do this.
Troubleshooting the problem.
The first thing you need to do is figure out why you don’t have connectivity. Now, you should figure out whether you are using a wireless or LAN connection. A LAN connection is created by using a cable that runs from your router into your computer. If you are using a LAN cable, then make sure it is properly connected. If you are using a wireless connection, then you should make sure that you are in range of the router. You should also make sure that your computer’s wireless card is activated. Restart your machine just to be safe. Once you have evaluated that the problem is not coming from within your computer, you can move on to your router.
Router issues are a real drag.
The first thing you need to do with your router is evaluated whether or not the wireless signal is coming out of it. Examine all cords going in and coming out of your router to make sure they are securely in place. Once you’ve done that, make sure that the “Wifi” light is lit. If it isn’t, then you’ve got issues. You can restart, not reset, the router and see if that solves your problem. If it hasn’t, then call your provider to make sure that the problem is not on their end. Beyond that, you might need the help of an IT professional to help you with your connectivity issues.
