Instead of calling your cable Internet provider next time your having problems with your Internet connection, try checking to see if your modem is faulty first. In many cases, a faulty modem can affect streaming capabilities, connectivity and WiFi speed. Here are a few tips to help you determine if your modem is faulty:
- Use a Coax Cable Tester to see if your cable modem is receiving signal
- Try turning your modem on and off to reset it
- Check your coax outlet for connectivity
An easy to use Coax Cable Tester like Hitron’s DSS-01 can instantly test your coax outlets for a valid Broadband signal from your Cable Broadband provider. If your modem isn’t receiving a signal from your cable Internet provider but your coax outlet and wiring are, then it may be time for a new modem.
Replacing your modem may seem overwhelming, but it is important to ensure that your new device connects to your coax seamlessly to support your entire household for a reliable Internet connection. A modem like the Hitron CODA DOCSIS 3.1 Cable Modem has the fastest multi-Gigabit speeds (including a download speed of up to 10 Gbps), so you have a hassle-free Internet connection for work, online gaming or streaming whenever you need it. Not only that, but your modem will also be ready for the future of faster internet speeds.
