Nowadays Internet is very important in everyday life. The tasks like shopping and banking can be easily done online with the help of Internet. However, sometimes you might face some issues while using the Internet connections. The connection issues are serious and you need to solve them as soon as possible. Improper cable connection to your Windows 7 system sometimes results in Internet connection problems. Loose or disconnected cables lead to Internet connectivity issues. The incorrect settings of your system might also cause problems with Internet connection. The installation of corrupted hardware is another reason for Internet connection problems. 'Diagnostic and repair' options in your Windows 7 Operating System might solve the issue of Internet connectivity.
Following points give users an idea about the causes of the Internet connection problems in a Windows 7 system:
- Low signal strength
- Problem with phone
- Issue with wireless card
Low signal strength
When the signal from the router is very low, it results in the Internet connection problems. Your wireless network becomes very slow due to the low signal received from the router. The position of the router corresponding to the system is an important factor of determining the signal strength. By placing the mouse over the 'Wireless connection' icon you might check the strength of the signal from the router. Also, an area with lot of Internet connections might get congested with wireless network traffic, which results in low signal strength.
Problem with phone
You might face loss of Internet connection while placing or receiving a call if the phone in your PC operates on 2.4GHz frequency. The wireless phone might interfere with wireless routers since both the router and phone operate at same frequency. The turning on and off of the router might solve this issue. The solution is to upgrade the frequency of the phone to 5.8GHz. You need to use a wired phone to solve this problem.
The Internet connectivity problem might also be caused by a bad wireless card. You could solve this problem by reconfiguring the settings of the wireless card. By resetting the router to the factory defaults and then changing the settings of the wireless card to the same settings,you can solve this issue. Another solution is to replace the old wireless card.
