There is a myriad of Wi-Fi errors that you could unexpectedly encounter when working in the office or simply browsing online at home.
For most of us, Wi-Fi has become such an ingrained part of everyday life that we only notice it when it stops working. And when it stops working it can literally feel as though your world has come to a crashing stop. We know the feeling all too well. As wireless internet providers in Nelspruit, we’ve answered all the questions and fixed just about every Wi-Fi related error you could imagine. While some errors require a little expert attention, others can be easily cleared on your own. But only if you know exactly what it is that you are facing.
With a little bit of knowledge about the things that can commonly go wrong with your Wi-Fi, you can get your internet connection going and have your life back on track.
Your Wi-Fi router is made to transmit radio waves from a central location to areas throughout the home or office. The incorrect placement can easily mean you either experience slow internet or a complete lack of a connection. Placing your router in a central location is important for a well distributed connection. There is always the possibility that the space you expect to cover is too large. Working with an internet provider would ensure that you get the coverage you need, but if you have problems you could always try changing the location of your router.
From smartphones to smart TVs, it would seem every bit of technology is Wi-Fi capable these days. But then you get that one device that no matter what you do, it simply refuses to connect! The frustration is real. This is more than likely a once off issue. So firstly, you can try restarting your router. And then you can try restarting the Wi-Fi on your device. If that doesn’t work, you can try deleting your current network from your device and then reconnect it. The last thing you can try is rebooting your device.
Again, this is a frustrating thing to happen, especially if you are right in the middle of something. Dropped connections could be the neighbour's fault, or it could be your router. If your neighbours are also using Wi-Fi, you could find that at certain times of the day your connection freaks out. If you suspect that it is the router, try resetting it and if that doesn’t work, contact your service provider.
Losing your Wi-Fi network on your device could mean that your router has reset itself. Try setting your device up to an Ethernet cable to reconfigure your router again.
