Some Common Questions

 
My connection is slow?
Spyware, Windows Updates, and IM clients can all run in the background and absorb bandwidth, making it seem that your connection has been suddenly slowed to a crawl. You can use programs such as Ad-Aware and/or other programs to test and make sure you do not have spyware on your PC that is using your connection, and keep your anti-virus current to make sure you do not have any Trojans, worms, or viruses on your PC that are slowing it as well. Ensure your wireless adapter card is located near a window that is facing the wireless access point. Be sure to remove any aluminum sunscreen from the window where the wireless card is located.
How Can I Increase my Signal?

Place your wireless device close to a window (preferably one facing the nearest WiFi access point). Interference from microwaves, cordless telephones, trees and other wireless routers can prevent you from getting a reliable signal as well, so try to limit these factors if at all possible. If you are using your laptop’s built-in WiFi adapter and relocation of the computer does not resolve your connection challenge, consider purchasing an external adapter. Built-in internal wireless adapters are designed by computer manufacturers for use inside like at your office, inside your home, or at a other indoor locations.

How can I increase my signal?
Locate your device close to a window, away from other devices, microwaves and any obstructions between you and the closest access point.

When I open my browser I do not see the Welcome or Log In page?

I am seeing interference,What causes this?
