Troubleshooting The Internet Connectivity Issues in Easy Way

Internet Connectivity

Introduced in the 1960s, ARPANET was the first workable prototype of internet. On 1 January 1983, ARPANET adopted TCP/IP, and then the modern internet started to come into being. In 1990, when Tim Berners-Lee developed the world wide web, the world got the present-day internet. Today, everything, every field, uses the internet. It has become the second nature of human beings. Though special measures are taken to ensure the internet connectivity and availability round the clock, still we can encounter some issues related to the connectivity which stops us from accessing the internet. Let’s discuss some basic troubleshooting tips regarding internet connectivity issues.

First of all, check the settings, make sure your network adaptor is enabled and the Wi-Fi setting, or wired setting, is turned on. Also check your Access Point, where the Ethernet cables going to and from your router. Make sure the cables are plugged in properly and there is no damage to any cable, and if any cable is damaged then replace it. Also make sure that you are in the range of your modem or router, and can also try incorporating boosters to boost the signal reception area. If you still face issues after following these basic steps, try the following advanced steps. Make sure your system has an IP address assigned, and also make sure that the IP assigned is not an APIPA address, and also that the DNS server has been configured. Also, verify that the default gateway address has been configured and you are able to ping that, or you can even try tracert to trace the exact route followed by packet over the network. You can use ipconfig/all command from the command prompt to check the configurations. Try clearing the computer’s DNS cache. At times, certain websites change their address and the DNS cache becomes outdated, so clearing the cache will force the DNS server to resolve the address again and hence update the address on the cache. Both Windows and Mac have built-in tools to repair connectivity issues. For Windows, type ncpa.cpl in the Run dialog box, and then right-click on the network adaptor and click on diagnose.  For Mac, on the Apple menu, click on system preferences → network → assist me → diagnostics. Check for viruses on your computer as they can also hinder the process of providing connectivity. If none of these fixes your connectivity issues, try to contact your internet service provider (ISP) as there can be outages in your area.
