Internet Connection

We recommend using a wired broadband connection—wireless, mobile, satellite, and dial-up connections are not always as fast or stable. On rare occasions, disruptions to your Internet connection can result in sessions freezing or closing abruptly. If this occurs, simply rejoin the session.

Technical Tips

Here are three tips to avoid common access issues:

  • A live Internet video feed that is clear and uninterrupted requires sufficient bandwidth. If you plan on watching this program in an environment with limited Internet bandwidth, encourage your peers to minimize their streaming activities (e.g., Internet radio, YouTube, downloading large files) during the event.
  • Make sure you have pop-ups disabled in your Internet browser settings.
  • Wi-Fi is not recommended because signal strength can vary causing bandwidth to increase or decrease.  
  • We recommend a wired connection. A wired connection gives a consistent signal and consistent bandwidth and provides a better experience.
  • It's better for organizations with low bandwidth to only have the session running on one computer in a conference room than having 10 individual people running the session on 10 computers at their desks.
  • Audio (sound) is projected through your computer speakers. Be sure your computer is equipped with speakers so you can hear the presenters.
  • We recommend that you log in 10-15 minutes prior to the start time to double check your connection and sound.
  • If you have problems accessing the event site, contact asha@commpartners.com
