Resolving internet instability

If you are on an unstable WiFi connection we recommend making a hard wired connection to your network via Ethernet cable.
  1.       A USB adapter might be required if your device lacks an Ethernet port.
If this does not improve your internet connection you will need to pursue support from your network administrator.

If you are still unable to maintain a consistent connection you should seek an alternative location for testing such as school computer lab, or public library.

 What if i don't know my network admin? If you are at school or work, contact your institutions IT department. If this is your home network, this will be the tech savvy member of your household. The support department from your Internet Service Provider (ISP) might also be useful.
