Tip for Improving Your Internet Connection Speed
Make sure no one else is using the internet while you’re testing. Things like watching Netflix/Hulu or playing online video games, will slow down the connection and may disconnect you from your exam.
Unplug your router and modem for at least 30 seconds. Plug the modem back in and wait 60 seconds, then plug the router back in and wait 2 minutes. Restart your computer. Test your internet connection again.
If on WiFi, connect VIA ethernet cable or move as close to the router as possible. (Keep in mind that no one else can be in your room!)
