Quick Check allows you to automatically check your line and eliminate Internet and connection problems when there is no connection or when the connection is interrupted or slow.
If your device is not connected to the Internet there can be several reasons for this. If Quick Check does not eliminate the problem, check the following additional solution options:
Can you answer all the questions with ‘yes’? Reboot the router and your device (laptop, PC, smartphone or table) to restore the connection.
Is the Internet connection interrupted on some or all connected devices? If Quick Check does not eliminate the problem, check the following additional solution options:
Your router offers two parallel WLAN networks – in the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequency ranges. In the event of WLAN issues, it is useful if the two networks are combined and band steering activated. Your devices are then automatically connected to the better WLAN network.
N.B. Band steering is automatically activated on all routers. However, the two WLAN networks (2.4 and 5 GHz) need to be combined for it to work.
How to make sure that band steering works on your router:
Try to place your router where you use WLAN most regularly. For more tips on the best place to locate your router refer to your Internet-Box user manual.
The WLAN-Box extends the WLAN of your Internet-Box 2 and creates a new WLAN where there is none currently or where the existing WLAN is not sufficient.
Problems with speed are very complex and can have many different causes. In general, a distinction is made between the Internet speed (dependent on your Internet subscription) and the WLAN speed (the connection between the Internet-Box and the computer/laptop). Both factors can influence the speed of your connection.
If Quick Check does not eliminate the problem, check the following additional solution options:
Analyse your WLAN and improve the quality of the connection with the help of My Swisscom Assistant.
Experienced users can also pinpoint the cause of a slow connection manually. Aside from some technical knowledge, you also need the results of the speed test and availability checker. You can use these results to isolate the cause and work out what to do next, like positioning your router in the optimum location. See the installation instructions for more details.
