How to Fix MediaCom Slow Internet Connection

Here are some quick fixes to help you fix the problem from the comfort of home.

It is important to remember that none these fixes will require you to take anything apart or put at risk the integrity of any equipment.

1. Verify the connection to other devices and sites

The best way to diagnose problems like these is to narrow down the possibilities.

It is possible, for example, that the device trying to connect to internet may have bugs.

  • To simplify the matter, we suggest connecting several devices to your service.
  • To check if you’re getting the internet speeds you need, will run a speed test. You can find many sites offering this free service by simply searching “internet speed test” on Google.
  • It is also a good idea to open a few other websites to check if they are working too slow. This is done to make sure the problem is not with one website.
  • This problem would have occurred with only one computer/device. This makes it much simpler to fix the problem.
  • If it were this, you’ll only need to reboot your system.
  • You will then need to run a malware scan using whatever anti-virus software that you’re using.
  • If was experiencing the same problem with all devices connected to the internet then the problem lies with the network.

This means you can just move on to the next step.

2. Modifying the router’s position

Although this next solution may sound too simple to be effective, you might be surprised at the results.

Many people don’t realize how important it is to have your router in the best position possible. This can affect its performance.

being near other electronic devices, for example, can cause the signal to travel slower than it should, making it less effective at reaching the device you want.

It is best to position it as high as possible to allow it to communicate freely without interruption.

Once you’re done, move on to the next step.

3. You can also run another speed test to compare your results

It is best to start with the simple ones before we move on to the more complicated tests.

The next step is to perform a speed test to determine if any of the previous steps have made any difference.

  • Make sure you have no other programs running that could be consuming a lot of bandwidth. It is always a good idea to make sure there are no active downloads on your network.
  • Perform a speed test and to determine if there has been any significant improvement in.
  • Your connection might be slower depending on the time of day. It shouldn’t be more than a few miles from what your ISP told you.
  • If you are not receiving the same internet speed as you pay, then it might be time for you to upgrade.

If you don’t get the speed you pay for, then we will need to continue investigating the issue.

4. Reboot your modem/router

Modems and routers like all high-tech devices, require a reboot from time to time to maintain their performance.

Bugs and performance issues can build up over time and slow down the system. It is best to catch them in the bud as soon as possible.

You only need one device to reboot if you’re currently using a combination router/modem unit. If you don’t have a combined router/modem unit, only one device can be rebooted.

This is a simple way to do it. It doesn’t take much to find the right button.

  • Unplug power cables for at least 10 second, then reconnect them once the time has expired.
  • It will likely take them a while to start communicating with your internet service provider.
  • You should then run another speed test to see if the situation has improved.

This will usually work in most cases. If you need to continue, you can consider yourself lucky.

5. Increase your Wi-Fi signal

Sometimes, your connection may be perfect but the signals aren’t strong sufficient to reach every device in your building.

It is easy to misinterpret the problem as a bad connection when this happens.

We have the solution:

  • Verify that you are using the 2.4 GHz bandwidth instead of the 5GHz.
  • Many other devices use the lower setting so your signal may be getting clogged up by a lot of traffic. This is more common in densely populated areas.
  • To ensure that your signal is broadcast effectively, we recommend purchasing a Wi-Fi booster (or repeater) if the higher setting doesn’t work.

6. Be sure to not overload your connection

Most internet connections end up being shared over many devices.

Sometimes, there are too many competing for the same signal .

It is not uncommon for all of them to lose a connection, especially if they are streaming or downloading large files.

Limit this activity or put restrictions to keep your bandwidth intact.

You can also upgrade your service.

7. Change DNS servers

Sometimes, your ISP’s DNS servers could be to blame.

Slow internet connections can mean that you won’t get the best connection possible in your home.

We would recommend that you switch DNS servers in this instance to increase internet speed.

Your internet service provider usually provides all default DNS servers.

However, if you switch to Google Public DNS or OpenDNS , you can access less-used servers that will give you faster speeds.
