Over a long period of time the internet has been the most valuable asset to human beings linking friends and families together and strengthening the bond between people in far distances. Using the old dial up type of internet connection would have been a great deal of trouble to download large data from the internet. The broadband internet connection method came as a messiah to the troubles experienced when using the dial up internet. But, unfortunately, many people still feel frustrated by the way their broadband internet connection performs. And this frustration has pushed many to go online in search for a long lasting solution to their broadband internet connection problem. Here in this post, I shall be explaining some five easy to use, but essential steps to have a better broadband internet experience.
Secure your computer with a strong antivirus:
An unsecure system cannot allow an easy flow of the internet, notwithstanding the fact that you are using a broadband with it. Viruses can slow your computer down and cause the speed of your broadband internet to suffer. Protect your computer by installing a very powerful antivirus on it. When your computer is guarded against virus attacks you will have a better experience of the internet using your broadband.
Note: You still have to keep you antivirus up to date because as there are now many solutions to combat virus attacks many hackers are improving the strength of their virus daily and should your antivirus run out of date then you should be ready to welcome viruses and spywares into your computer.
Clean your computer:
Another option that can help improve the performance of your internet significantly is for you to clean your computer up. By cleaning your computer, I mean uninstalling every unused software application that are installed on your computer, deleting old file that are no more relevant to you or your computer and emptying the recycle bin.
Doing this will give your computer more free space to perform better and hence improving the performance of your broadband internet also.
Upgrade your PC:
Your broadband internet might be performing poorly because your personal computer is very slow generally and has low components like hard disk of little size, small RAMs and so on. In this case, it will do you good if you upgrade your computer by increasing the size of the hard disk and adding to the rather little RAM that is presently in it.
You can handle this yourself if you are computer savvy and can handle computer hardware components but if you know you are not quite sure about it, it will save you a lot to contact a computer technician or engineer.
Update your drivers:
Another factor that can contribute to the problems of your broadband internet is your drivers running out of date. When the drivers on your computer become outdated it will become difficult for your computer to do some specific tasks such as connecting to the server of the drivers’ manufacturers to correct common errors. And when errors that are meant to be corrected automatically cannot be corrected it will delay the performance of your computer and cause a lot of problems to your computer’s operating system. This can also affect your internet connection thereby causing you to experience slow internet performance instead of the steady and fast internet experience you used to have.
Run disk defragmenter:
When you have disk fragmentation on your computer’s hard disk the overall process of your computer will slow down. This is because when you try to open a file your computer will have to locate each pieces of the file from different locations which usually takes a long process for your computer.
Running disk defragmenter will cure this nasty problem by bringing the files and folders on your computer together so that each file and folder occupies a single space.
