how-to block ads
•Clear your Browser's Cache and Temporary Internet Files.
•If you're using any proxy server, disable it here.
•Power-cycle your modem/router, directions here.
•Your modem, router or cables are too close to a device that
emits EMI/RFI and need to be moved.
•Check that your NIC (Network Interface Card) drivers are up
to date from the manufacturer.
•Check that your cables are plugged in tight. If you have some
spare ones, try another cable or swap them around.
•For DSL connections, one or more filters may have gone bad
and need to be replaced. For cable connections, a splitter may
have gone bad.
•For DSL connections, check to be sure all phones or devices
hooked to the phone lines are filtered, including external fax
machines, Satellite Dish receiver, TiVo and ReplayTV DVRs, Analog
MODEMs (internal or external), PPV cable boxes, cordless phones,
wall mount kitchen phones, etc. You should also not exceed 6
filters in the house, and if you do, you will need a whole house
splitter and a home run installed (either do-it-yourself or
professional installation). [Thanks goes to Doctor Olds for this tip.]
•For DSL connections, your inside phone wiring on your DSL line may be bad.
Try checking your sync and speed at the NID or INI.
While the above is not an exhaustive list, it provides a good place to start.
