Internet Troubleshooting

The speed test will be opened in a new window. Please compare your speed test results with the bandwidth you are currently paying for. If you are receiving less, please call technical support (608) 634-3136.

If you are experiencing issues with your Internet service, one of the first things to try is rebooting your devices (computer, laptop, smartphone). If you still can’t connect, try rebooting your router.

  • Unplug the power cord (only the power cord is necessary).
  • Wait for at least 10 seconds.
  • Plug the power cord back in
  • Wait approximately one minute. If on Wi-Fi verify it has reconnected.

If you can’t connect after rebooting your devices and your router, reboot your modem following the same steps listed above.

If you are still having issues call us at (608) 634-3136 for further troubleshooting.

Please verify you have adequate bandwidth and Wi-Fi signal for the stream you are trying to watch. We recommend at least 10 Meg to watch a single Netflix stream. If you are using the Internet AND watching Netflix, consider increasing your bandwidth.

Wireless Routers Available
To Connect To Wi-Fi:

  • Find the “Wireless” settings on your device and click or open it. Under “settings” on tablets and smartphones. In the lower left corner in Windows Vista, 7, 8 (desktop side) and 10.
  • Look for your signal name from the list. Your last name, your modem brand or just the “top” one in the list .
  • Click your connection.
  • Enter the password if asked for one (the password is on a sticker on the bottom of your router if you lease it from VC Co-op).
  • Click/press Connect.
  • Check “Connect Automatically” box. (if you have one)

Wireless (Wi-Fi) signal is limited by distance, thickness, and number of obstructions in the signal path and any electronic/airwave interference. You may need a repeater or access point to boost your Wi-Fi signal. Also, if you have neighbors near you, we STRONGLY recommend securing your Wi-Fi connection. For help securing your router, call VC Co-op (608) 634-3136 and we can assist you.
