Modern life is unthinkable without Internet access. With it, people communicate, work, exchange data, read news and even learn. The lack of a network connection makes a computer almost useless for many people. Today we will try to find out under what circumstances Rostelecom’s Internet does not work. What if the network connection fails? Where to go for help? The answers to all this and not only will be surely discovered below!
Causes of malfunctions
In fact, it’s rather difficult to understand the reasons why the Rostelecom Internet does not work. There are a lot of them - from banal crashes to hardware problems and viruses on the computer.
We will consider the most common situations. These include:
- personal account debt;
- Crash at Rostelecom
- carrying out certain works on the line;
- modem malfunction;
- incorrect connection of the router;
- viruses on the computer;
- accident on the line;
- knocked down network settings;
- overload of transmission lines;
- Outdated or completely missing Internet drivers.
With proper preparation, it is not difficult to solve the problem of non-working access to the Network. True, far from always the user can somehow influence the course of affairs.
Rush hour or network congestion
Internet does not work "Rostelecom"? What to do? It all depends on the specific case.
For example, a failure in Internet access may occur due to heavy loads on the network. It is usually problematic to connect to the network at the so-called rush hour - during periods when many people simultaneously work on the Internet. This is often evening time.
If Rostelecom does not work due to the heavy load on the line, you will only have to wait. The Internet will recover when user activity decreases.
Important: most often, network congestion appears at about the same time. This is how advanced users "diagnose" it.
Internet does not work "Rostelecom" through a router or modem? It is possible that the whole thing is in the knocked down equipment settings.
You can try to set them manually. This will require:
- Open Start.
- Go to "Control Panel" - "Network" - "Network Connections".
- Click on the right RMB item and select "Properties".
- Select "Internet Protocol Version 4".
- Click on the "Properties" button.
- Check the box next to "Automatic settings" if specific values were previously set. Otherwise, check the box next to "Use the following IP / DNS."
- Enter IP and DNS. The corresponding settings are best clarified in Rostelecom.
- Click on "OK."
- To restart a computer.
But this is only one of several scenarios. If the Internet does not work, Rostelecom, the user can simply turn off and on the router or restart it. For this, there are special buttons on the device.
In some cases, the problem under study appears when the modem is connected incorrectly. This usually happens if the user himself connected the output devices to the network.
You need to make sure that the following chain takes place:
- The power cord is plugged in and into a special hole. Usually it is round.
- A provider wire is connected to the modem for the Internet to work. A suitable connector has a special inscription.
- The router is on. Do not confuse this item with a network connection. To activate the device you have to click on the Power button.
In some cases, the user must take a special wire and connect it first to the modem, then to the computer or laptop. Otherwise, you need to turn on the PC, find Wi-Fi and connect to the Internet. A suitable item will appear if the router has been correctly connected to other wires.
Have you connected Rostelecom? Internet does not work? It's time to check your computer for viruses. Sometimes they block access to the network.
Any antivirus program will do - NOD32, Avast, Kaspersky, and so on. You need to scan the OS and then remove or disinfect all potentially dangerous objects.
After the first reboot of the computer, following the removal of viruses, the Internet will work again. But, as a rule, this scenario is not too common.
Internet does not work "Rostelecom"? Some people complain that they have entered into a contract with a provider, but they still have no access to the network.
It is possible that the user simply has a debt on the client’s personal account. In this case, Internet access will be blocked until the debt is paid off. Therefore, it is necessary to pay for the services of Rostelecom in a timely manner. And even after concluding an agreement with the company, you should not hesitate.
Technical work and malfunctions
Most often, lack of access to the network is observed during technical or emergency operations on transmission lines. This is a normal phenomenon that occurs with all providers.
Internet does not work "Rostelecom"? Where to call for information about the status of transmission lines and modem settings? You need to dial the number 8 800 100 08 00 on the phone. Next, you will have to wait for the response of the operator or use the voice menu to get the information we are interested in.
When carrying out technical work or while troubleshooting network problems, the user just needs to be patient. As soon as all the necessary manipulations are completed, the Internet will return.
But that is not all. Internet does not work "Rostelecom"? Where to call, we have already figured out. In the call center of the provider, they will definitely help to restore access to the network.
Sometimes accidents on the lines, as well as bad weather conditions interrupt the transmitted signals. As a result of this, Internet access is cut off. Any user actions here are useless.
Internet does not work "Rostelecom"? What if the listed scenarios did not fit?
You can check for drivers for the network card and modem. On Windows 7 (and on newer operating systems), the corresponding document packages are downloaded automatically, but they still have to be updated.
This will require:
- Click RMB on the "My Computer" icon.
- Select "Properties".
- Click on the line "Device Manager".
- Find and select "Network Adapters" - "Device Model".
- Click RMB on the corresponding line.
- Select the item "Update drivers ...".
If everything was done correctly, the drivers will be checked and updated. A similar operation can be performed using special driver disks. Then the package of documents is installed as a regular application.
