Tech Tips for Writers #111: Quick Internet Fix

April 23, 2016


Tech Tips for Writers is an (almost) weekly post on overcoming Tech Dread. I’ll cover issues that friends, both real-time and virtual, have shared. Feel free to post a comment about a question you have. I’ll cover it in a future Tip.

Q: The internet website is quirky. Stuff I know should work doesn’t. Is there any quick way to fix that without having to reboot?

A: Here are four steps you can take before rebooting your entire computer:

  1. Refresh the webpage with the ‘reload current page’ tool. About half the time, that works.
  2. Next, close the internet down and re-open.
  3. Unplug the modem (or router–or both), wait ten seconds, and replug
  4. Try a different browser.
