Slow Internet: One Quick Solution

Saturday, January 21st, 2017 by | Filed Under: Computer Terms, Hardware & Peripherals, Quick Tips

There’s nothing worse than having your Internet slow to a crawl. But what’s worse is not being able to find an obvious problem behind it. It’s not just affecting one or two web pages, you don’t have any strange browser add-ons slowing you down, your computer is running just fine with other programs, and when you check the strength of your connection, it’s right where it’s supposed to be.  What do you do now?



One solution is to give your modem a reboot. Turn it off for a few minutes and also make sure to take out the battery. Then pop the battery back in and turn it back on. Your modem processes an incredible amount of information and sometimes it can get a little confused. A brief shutdown can help clear its brain.

    Good Tip. I had never thought of that. My only question would be: Should this be done weekly or daily?
