Internet Slowing Down? Hire An Internet Service Provider To Determine Why

If your Internet is slowing down in your home this can get frustrating for you and everyone in the family. There are many things that can cause this problem, two of which are listed below. You can take care of some things on your own but other problems will require a call to your Internet services provider. 

Too Many People Using the Internet

If you have a large family and everyone is using the Internet at the same time, this could slow down your signal. This is especially true if you have a large home. The further you are away from the router, the lower your Internet signal may be. 

Fortunately, there are many things you can do to boost the signal so everyone in the home will have fast Internet again. You could install a Wi-Fi signal booster. You can purchase this product online or at electronic stores in your area. The signal booster is generally small and can be installed easily. You simply plug the booster into a power outlet and use a network cable to connect the booster to your Wi-Fi router. 

If you are still getting slow Internet the problem could be outside your home. Contact your Internet service provider to help you with this. They can also give you other tips on things you can do on your own.  

Viruses and Spyware

If only one computer is experiencing slow Internet, it could be caused by having one or more viruses. Once your computer gets a virus it spreads quickly because it sends out hundreds of copies of the virus. Once this happens, your Internet will slow down drastically in most cases. 

You may have spyware on your computer, which can also slow down your Internet. This is because spyware interferes with the Internet browser and your Internet connection. Spyware is constantly monitoring you as you use the Internet and the keystrokes that you use, which can also slow down the Internet. 

There are free anti-virus and anti-spyware software that you can install on your computer. There are also paid versions of this software. Once installed it will protect your computer so you will not get future viruses and/or spyware. If your computer is clean and you still have slow Internet, it is time to contact the Internet service provider to help you. 

The Internet service can tell you of other problems you may have that can cause your Internet to slow down.

Thank you for visiting my weblog. My name is Eric Stark. I'm a single father who works a full time job. My oldest is a Freshman in high school and is very responsible, but I still worry about her when she comes home from school while I am still at work. My greatest fear is that something might happen while I'm away and I'd be unable to help. These fears have driven me to find the best home monitoring service that I could find. I hope this website can help me help someone else who has the same fears. The world of home security systems can be daunting to navigate, but I have done the work for you.
