To test your current Internet connection speed and confirm your connecting is working as expected, you can conduct speed tests at http://speedtest.secv.com. For accurate results, please run a minimum of three (3) tests. If your speed test results are not favorable, and you have a wireless router connected, try bypassing the router by connecting the modem directly to a computer with an Ethernet cable, and then run the speed tests again.
There are also a number of other contributing factors to slow connections.
• Ensure you have a antivirus and anti-spyware software installed. Virus protection and anti-spyware programs are essential to good performance. These programs may be downloaded online or purchased at a software retailer. Remember to check for updates regularly, and run tests weekly to ensure there are no infections.
• Active uploads and downloads may also impact your connection speeds. iTunes, You Tube and other file sharing processes can slow down your connection.
• Ensure the modem has not been moved to another outlet since it was installed by our Technician. Only one outlet in your home was made active for Internet connectivity.
