Faster Internet Speed!

Internet Service Providers (ISP) are upgrading their speeds and we’re really happy about that.  Can’t always see the pattern in how they choose to do this or that area first (we’ll guess it’s based on the bottom line and not just out of their good graces).

But what has apparently become standard practice for ISPs, they don’t go out of their way to tell their current customers they are eligible for these higher speeds, and often at the same or even lower(!) cost.

Our recommendation?  Make it a point to contact your ISP at least yearly to see what’s available.  And while you’re at it, check out what the competition is offering too.

Internet Connectivity Troubleshooting

Having a tough time getting onto the internet?  Here are some short steps to take when you can’t get internet connectivity, before making ANY calls!

1 – Find your modem (it can be a variety of shapes, but has lots of blinking lights on it…) and unplug the power cord for one minute.  Plug it back in and if you see an orange or amber light, you may be having modem issues. The internet company will have to reset your modem.  If the lights are green, you are good to go onto step #2…

2 – Find your router (look for the machine that looks like it has one or more antennas…) and unplug the power cord for at least 10 seconds.  Again, look for the blinking lights when you plug it back in. You should see the internet or Ethernet lights blinking – if they are not, you will probably want to give us a call as your router may need repairing or replacing.  If the lights are blinking, GREAT! On to step #3…

3 – Restart your computer!  Be sure to do a full restart/reboot so the computer gets a fresh connection to the internet.  That should do it!

If, for some reason, you still are not getting any connection to the internet call your internet provider and request a modem reset.  If that STILL doesn’t do the trick, you may have a virus.  Give us a call, we can help you out.

Good luck and happy computing!

Privacy on the Internet

Privacy in today’s world is in a massive state of flux.  Did you know your internet behavior leaks into your physical world, whether you know it or not?  We’ve all heard about the NSA spying but what does that have to do with us?  We predict there will be a radical pendulum swing toward privacy after the effects of no privacy come back to bite enough people.

Do a search on Google and it’s tracked.  Same with Bing, Yahoo, MSN, etc.  Why should you care?

You wouldn’t allow a video camera into your home to track your movements and activities would you?  Okay, yeah, well, the people on those reality shows aren’t the sharpest tools in the shed now are they?  But most people wouldn’t, they just don’t realize what’s happening in the quest to “provide our members a better browsing experience”.  That’s corporate-speak for we’re going to gather so much information about you, sell it or use it, and make you think buying Product A or Product B is more important than just about anything else.

So when you search in the most popular search engines, what you seek can be recorded.  Even more so if you’re logged into Facebook or Gmail or Yahoo etc.  It can be traced to you and that information is recorded, relayed to advertisers and any corporation who buys it.  Well so what?

Maybe it doesn’t matter.  Maybe it does.  What if your credit rating can affect your insurance rate?  Or job offers?  What if you searched on ethical practices for companies and that got back to your boss and you got fired?  Maybe you’re a vocal Republican or Democrat and through this data mining your clients find out and you lose a sale?

We’re not saying be a conspiracy theorist, we just want you to know that you can take some precautions like switching your search engine to sites like DuckDuckGo, Ixquick or Startpage.  You have options, Google hasn’t taken over the world yet.  er, have they….?
