It’s a sad fact that many people don’t know how to troubleshoot their own networks. In fact, they often don’t even realize they have a problem! This guide will help you solve common problems and keep your network humming along. I’ll start by showing you how to find out if there’s an issue with your internet connection or Wi-Fi connection. From there, we’ll go into detail about some of the most common issues with home and business networks: Wi-Fi connectivity problems, wired LAN/WAN issues, and connecting devices like TVs or gaming consoles to your network.


  • Wi-Fi problems
  • Wi-Fi not working
  • Wi-Fi is slow or inconsistent


  • LAN and WAN are terms used to describe the architecture of your network.
  • LAN stands for local area network, while WAN stands for wide area network. A local area network is a group of computers that are connected together in a small geographical area (like your office), whereas a wide area network can span across cities or countries.
  • To troubleshoot your LAN/WAN, you need to first determine if there’s an issue with its speed or connectivity. You can do this by checking the ping test results from one computer on your network against another computer’s ping results; if they’re different enough from each other, then there might be some kind of interference happening between them.* You’ll also want to check whether all devices in question have updated drivers installed; if not then this may be causing problems as well!

Network Attached Storage (NAS)

NAS (Network Attached Storage) is a storage device that connects to your network. It can be used to store and share files, backups and media streaming. NAS devices are also used for virtualization purposes, such as running virtual machines on the network attached storage device without having to buy an actual computer or server.

Learn how to troubleshoot your network.

Troubleshooting your network is an important skill to learn, and it can save you a lot of time and frustration. The first step to troubleshooting is figuring out whether or not the problem is with your computer or with the network itself.

If you’re having trouble accessing a website on any device connected to your home network, it’s likely that something has gone wrong with either your computer or its connection to the Internet. However, if all of your devices are working fine but one person in particular cannot access websites or use certain applications (such as Skype), then there might be something wrong with their computer instead of yours.

Once you’ve determined whether or not this issue is related directly back towards yourself personally (meaning: Is it just me?) then we can move forward into diagnosing why exactly this might be happening!
