Frequently asked questions about wireless internet troubleshooting

Here are some of the questions we’re frequently asked. 

Why can’t I connect to my WiFi?

This is, by leaps and bounds, the most common question we’re asked. One of the biggest frustrations of Wireless internet troubleshooting is that when something goes wrong, most of the time nothing is visibly different. Nothing goes pop or buzz. Smoke doesn’t come out of anything. All that you’re experiencing is an absence of data reaching your device. 

To perform a wireless internet repair, the first thing we will do is collect details. We’ll check connectivity at your modem. We’ll see if only some of your devices aren’t making a connection or if it’s a blanket connectivity issue. Step by cyber-sleuthing step we’ll build a complete picture of where your problem originates. The great advantage for you is that our approach to wireless internet troubleshooting is aimed at fixing the problem at its source. 

Why is my WiFi dropping in and out randomly?

When we hear a question like this from our Sacramento customers, instantly our nerdy instincts leap to the possibility of interference being your chief culprit. Could be that your 90s-era microwave is gnawing away at your signal strength? Or perhaps your neighbors just bought a new router which just so happens to be overlapping with yours. Or it could be simple network congestion. 

When we’re doing wireless internet troubleshooting on a problem like this, we’ll experiment with different router channels and placement around your house. Again, one of the big upsides of working with a Sacramento mobile tech support company like Nerds On Call is that we’re able to perform the wireless internet repair right in your home. We’re able to scrutinize the real factors that might be causing your issue.

How can I make my WiFi faster?

Consider this scenario. You decide to pay your Sacramento service provider top dollar to get a blazing fast internet speed. Plugging your laptop into your modem via an ethernet cable, you see that you’re hitting speeds of close to 1Gbps. Whew! Your connection at its source is faster than a weasel wearing rocket pants. Then you go to watch Netflix on your smartphone and it buffers … and buffers … and buffers. 

What’s happening? Is it a problem with your modem? Your router? Your phone? Netflix? Gah! 

For speed-centric wireless internet troubleshooting, we’ll use a careful process of elimination to see where the bottleneck (or bottlenecks) are manifesting. Getting fast internet from your ISP is an investment. We make sure you get the best possible value from that investment.
