If you own a Windstream product, one of the things you should know about is that this can be a problem with the Windstream Speed Test. What happens is that sometimes when you use this tool on your PC, it will tell you if it has got a blocked connection to your internet. This can cause problems, as your computer could get a huge speed decrease when this happens. You need to know how to fix it so that you do not have to wait hours for this to be fixed and you can download your favourite Windstream software again.
The first thing you need to do is check your firewall on your computer to see if it’s the reason why your connection is being blocked by the Internet. In order to do this, you can type ‘netsh interface’ into a browser and look at the options that come up. The one that comes up will say something along the lines of “Internet Connection: Blocked”. To fix this, you should try to open the Internet Connection Control Panel by going into Control Panel. Click on the Networking tab and make sure there’s an entry saying “Allow all network traffic through my router” in the General tab.
The next thing that you should do is download your Windstream software from the web site and then open up the Windstream Speed Test application. It will be on the left side of your screen at the top of the main window, which means that you will be able to access it easily. If this does not work, then you may have to install and run a different piece of software.
