Broadband Connection Dropping in Computer Issue
Get to know more about fixing issues related with Broadband connection in a computer.
Computers can be connected over some form of network or the other. Network connections enable computers to share data and information with each other. Network connections are usually classified by the speeds which they support and the type of connecting medium required. Broadband is a connection that has a minimum speed of 256Kbps. A broadband connection directly sends a signal without modulation on a carrier because of which it provides high speed connection to users. Most Windows-based operating systems come with a network setup wizard that can be used to setup any type of connection with the system and this includes broadband connection. However, some users might face some problems with the use of broadband connection on their systems. Some of the common issues that are known to come up with the use of broadband connection include connection getting dropped, connection errors, system not connecting to network at all and so on. The broadband connection on your system might be getting dropped because of many reasons such as problems with the network related drivers used, malware infections within the system, problems with the connecting hardware or connecting being interrupted by some external source.
Following details give users more information regarding ways to solve broadband connection getting dropped issue:
- Check Drivers
- Remove Threats
- Check Connections
The network card on your computer is used to connect the system to a broadband connection. This network card in turn requires drivers to function. If the network related drivers installed on the system are having some issues, then connection might get dropped. All users having broadband connection getting dropped issue are suggested to check the network drivers installed on the system using the Device Manager and if the drivers are found incorrect, incompatible or outdated, they would have to be replaced to solve the issue.
Threats or malware infections within the system can also cause broadband connection getting dropped issue. Malware infections cause such problems so that users would not be able to download or upload files using the broadband connection and the connection may be interrupted resulting in loss of data. Installing the system with a good malware removal tool and removing the infections can solve the issues and get the broadband connection working properly.
Another reason for this issue may be due to the connecting hardware. If the connecting hardware is not secure in the port, the connection would drop. Similarly, in the case of wireless broadband connection some other devices interfering with the connection can also cause connection to drop. Users having broadband connection dropping issue are advised to check the connecting hardware and secure them and replace the connecting hardware if they are found damaged. In case of wireless broadband connection, users would have to move the device causing the disturbance to solve the issue.
