Help! Internet/Firefox Not Working
Help! The internet and/or Firefox are not working! What should I do?
First, don't panic. It's a hard thing to not panic when you have that big assignment due or you are waiting for an all important email, but when approaching issues dealing with technology, the better response is to be calm, cool, and collected. There could be a number reasons why either the internet or Firefox are not working, everything from not being connected or even acts of weather.
Let's take a look at problems that could happen with the internet.
Internet Not Working
There can be several different connectivity issues involving the internet that a user may experience. There are two main types of internet connections:
Wireless - In which the computer receives signals from a wireless router in order to get connected to the Internet.
Ethernet - In which a network cord is connected from the computer to a cable modem or wireless router.
Some issues are due to the connection you have. For instance, if you have a wireless connection and are not connected, your wireless may be turned off. This can happen on laptops where there is an actual button that needs to be pushed or switched and can sometimes be hit by accident. If connected by an Ethernet cord, sometimes the cord may not be plugged in or it may be faulty and needs to be replaced.
