VPN (Virtual Private Network):
  • If you regularly use a VPN, disconnect from it. If you were on a VPN before entering a session, restart computer with VPN off.

Firewall:
  • Disable any known firewall that might be blocking access. Firewalls will cause delays in audio/video feeds/streaming. You may need to contact your IT department to open any necessary ports. At a minimum, TCP ports 80 and 443 should be open.

Common Troubleshooting Tips:
  • If possible, use hard-wired internet instead of WiFi.
  • Try to have as few devices connected to your internet as possible, to maximize your speed.
  • Close out of apps like RingCentral, Skype, and Zoom and restart your computer before logging in. These apps will often hold on to your previous settings.
  • I’m getting a “Connection can’t be established” screen:
    • Check your speed to ensure it meets above minimum requirements or try connecting from a different device.
    • Disable any Google Chrome or Firefox extensions that might be blocking WebRTC or talk to your IT team to open any necessary ports.
  • I have no sound and can’t hear the presenters:
    • Upon logging in, you will be prompted to accept the audio stream.
    • To adjust volume, use your device’s volume controls.
    • Make sure your computer is not muted and that your speakers/headphones are working properly.
    • Try refreshing your browser.
    • Try restarting your computer.
  • I can’t see the presenter’s video:
    • Try refreshing your browser. Make sure your audio is on after refreshing.
    • Make sure your internet speed meets the minimum requirements listed above.
