Common network problems and solutions
In case an unstable connection is just a one-time glitch, you can blame it on bad weather conditions or technical problems with the provider. But when failures occur regularly, this is a reason to be vigilant. Indeed, if you fail to fix the problem right away, the Internet may disappear at the most inopportune moment. Since most network errors have quick solutions, you can easily produce the necessary repairs right at home. And Howly is always happy to help you. Therefore, you may find an answer to your question among the following common network issues and solutions to them.
What should I do if I lose the Internet connection every time I turn on VPN?
The below-mentioned steps may help you fix this annoying network problem:
- Update the software of your VPN app.
- Try connecting to another VPN server.
- Flush the DNS cache by going to the Windows command prompt and writing flushdns/ipconfig.
- Try changing your VPN client’s data transfer protocol from TCP to UDP or vice versa.
- Disable your antivirus program.
- Deactivate the proxy server in your browser settings.
My cable Internet isn’t working. What to do?
You may also see an “Identification” or “Unidentified Network” message in the network settings on your Windows computer. Most likely, the reason why you don’t have access to cable Internet lies in the missing IP address. To fix the problem, open the “Network and Sharing Center” and enter the “Change adapter settings” tab. Next, right-click on the LAN connection icon and open properties. Click on “Internet Protocol version 4” and check the boxes to detect the IP and DNS addresses automatically. After that, unplug the Internet cable and plug it in again. If there is no result, enter the IP and DNS manually. You may find the required configurations in the subscriber registration card from your provider.
My Internet is too slow. Is there anything I can do?
There is a number of effective tips to boost your Internet connection speed:
- Install another browser.
- Disable Torrent, as when such utilities are running, the connection speed drops significantly.
- Restart your router/modem.
- Reset your router settings.
- Restart your PC.
- Try a cable connection.
- Close all running programs.
- Perform the internal cleaning of your device.
