What Do You Do when Your Internet Speed Is Slow?

Problem scenario
You are at home and your internet is slow. What should you do?

Possible solution #1
Reboot the cable router and any intermediate routers (i.e., any network device such as an IDS or firewall).

Possible solution #2
Log into your router's interface to view the connected devices. To do this, find the default gateway IP address of your computer. If you are using a Windows machine, hold the Windows key, tap the "r" key, then type: cmd

Then type ipconfig and press enter.

Open a web browser and go to this IP address. Enter credentials. Is there a networked or wireless device you do not recognize? Maybe there is a tablet computer or cell phone connected to your router.

Possible solution #3
Reboot your computer.
