How to run a Speed Test

Router Bypass

Note: A speed test over Wi-Fi will show remaining bandwidth. Accurate speed test will be bypassing your router directly into a laptop or desktop.

Devices connected to the router will still use data. 

Wireless Power Cycle

             First, go to your wireless router.  Look for a brand name, like Netgear, Linksys, TP Link, etc. Once you find your wireless router, follow the cable in the “Internet or WAN” port to locate your Power Injector.  It will be located somewhere between the equipment from outside and your wireless router. If you do not have a wireless router, then the cord from your Power Injector goes right into your computer. Your power injector will have two Ethernet cords coming out of it with a light in the middle. Unplug the power cord from the back of the power injector box.

If you have a wireless router, pull “Out” the power cord with the round end. Wait 60 seconds. Insert your power cord back into the small box. (Power Injector) Ensure the light is on.

After we recommend restarting your devices, make sure you are connected to a Network (your router) then click on your internet icon. Your homepage should come up. Ensure you can get to other sites like Facebook, Google or check your email … etc.

If you are still unable to connect, we recommend performing a “Router Bypass” to ensure service is coming into the home. (How to video post above)

Fiber Power Cycle

If you are experiencing a loss in connection, we first recommend power cycling your router. After 2-3 minutes if you are unable to connect find the power injector. (Example Below). Press and hold the power button for 2 seconds. Wait 5-10 minutes and service should resume.
