How do I connect to the Internet?
A broadband Internet connection is steadily becoming the norm for most people and is generally fairly reliable once established.
If you normally get a good connection, and you now have a problem connecting, about the only thing you need to do is to disconnect the router from its power source for a minute or so and then power it up again. This should solve almost all of your broadband connection problems and if it doesn't contact your service provider.
