questions that we’ve heard more than once
Or, sometimes techies need to know the DNS IP addresses:
- Primary DNS: 188.8.131.52
- Secondary DNS: 184.108.40.206
The first thing to do when you can’t connect to the internet is to power cycle all of your equipment. This is fancy for “turn it all off, then turn it all back on.” Including your computer. If you call us this is the first thing you we are going to ask you to do as it fixes 80% of all issues.
For TaosNet wireless customers this usually means you’ll want to unplug the power cord to your wireless router and the power cord to your antenna and make sure the lights are off on both. Then wait about a minute, then plug them both back in. Then restart your computer. If you still can’t get online then give us a call. 575-758-7598
No, never. Well, almost never. OK, the only time it’s ok to reset your router, is when you have specifically been told by TaosNet that it is ok for you to reset your router. Otherwise, no.
Our 4mbps download plan will let you surf the web and send email very quickly. It’ll also be good enough for one person to stream high-quality video, such as Netflix, Youtube, etc. at a time. However, it usually isn’t enough bandwidth for HD video nor is it enough bandwidth for more than one person to watch streaming video at the same time.
As a general rule you need about 8mbps download to stream HD video per person. So if you have two adults and three teens (<- heavy users!) in the house, who all might use their own computers and devices to stream video at the same time, then you’d probably want our 32mbps download plan.
Keep in mind that you can upgrade or downgrade your bandwidth plan any time. So you might start off slow and upgrade as needed.
