My Internet is out

    • Is the problem with email, web browsing, or both?

    • If directly plugged into the router or switch, can you access the Internet?
      • If the customer plugs in upstream and can surf, then the issue is with the device.
    • Are all the cables plugged in?

My Internet is slow

    • Did you conduct a speed test on the device?
      • Run a speed test from 2 different devices at
    • How many devices are currently accessing your home network?

    • Can you see WiFi SSID on any device (PC, laptop, cell, tablet)?
