Troubleshooting Fiber Internet
If you are ever having a problem getting connected to your internet service, please check the following before calling:
Check your connections:
- Verify that the Ethernet cable is plugged into the Switch on one end and then the other to your PC or Wireless Router.
Note: A surge protector is highly suggested to protect your equipment from sudden power surges that could cause damage.
Note: A wireless router is only used if your computer(s) have a wireless card or if you have multiple computers using the same internet service; computers are connected to a router either through individual wireless cards or through Ethernet cables.
Power cycle your Switch:
- Unplug the power adapter from the Switch for 15-20 seconds and plug it back in.
Note: If you do not use a wireless router, skip the next steps.
Power cycle your router:
- Unplug the power adapter from your Wireless Router for 15-20 seconds and plug it back in.
Bypass your router:
- Plug the Ethernet cable directly into your computer from the Switch; don't use the router.
Note: If your service works after doing this, something is wrong with your router or your wireless internet card.
