Some basic tests to check out your internet connectivity.
Having trouble with your internet connection - maybe?
Here are a couple of quick tests:
Test basic connectivityWhen your internet connection is in doubt, or your browser might be playing up,
the simplest and easiest thing to do is try visiting a couple of web sites with very short web addresses:
- www.ibm.com - in your browser's address field simply type the letters: ibm then hit <Ctrl>+<enter>
hold down the Control key, and tap the Enter key - this will
automatically put the "www." in front of the letters you typed, and
will put ".com" at the end of the letters.
