Steps to improve your Internet connection

  • Restart your router/modem. 
  • Minimize the number of devices on the network. 
  • Decrease the distance between your computer and your router/modem.
  • If you have a router/modem provided by your internet provider, and it is over 3 years old, it may be time to swap your router/modem with new equipment.  This is completely FREE.  
  • Upgrade your internet service to allow for a better experience.
  • If at all possible, connect your device to your router/modem using an ethernet cord.
