Wireless Internet not Working Issue

Are you aware of the reasons due to which the wireless Internet in your computer does not work?

Internet has a very important place in everybody's life. The users may do various tasks, like online shopping and banking with the help of Internet. The problem with the Internet connection can become a trouble for the people who depend daily on the Internet for doing many tasks. Using some simple solutions you can solve most of the problems. First, you need to check the router connected to your system for wireless connectivity. The Internet connectivity problem may occur if the wireless router is not working properly. The problems with the settings of your system may also cause problems with the Internet connection. The connectivity problems can be solved with the diagnostic and repair options in your operating system.

Following are some of the causes of the problems with the wireless Internet:

  • Low signal strength

  • Issue with phone

  • Faulty wireless network card

Low signal strength

Sometimes, the signal from the router may be very low and it may result in problems with the wireless network. Your system may get the signal from the router only if the system is near the router. The signal received by the system depends on the channel that you set on the router. Congested wireless network traffic in the area with lot of Internet connection may also result in the low signal strength. Thus, the solution to this problem is that you place router closer to the system.

Issue with phone

The phone in your home with frequency 2.4GHz may cause problems in the wireless Internet connection. This is because wireless phone may interfere with wireless router because the router also operates at the same frequency. In this situation, you need to turn off and then turn on the router. The solution is that you need to upgrade the frequency of the phone to 5.8GHz.

Faulty wireless network card

Bad wireless card may affect the working of the Internet connection. By replacing the wireless network card, you can solve this problem. You may also solve the issue by resetting the router to the factory defaults and then change the settings of the wireless card to the same settings. Check the compatibility of the wireless network card with the system.
