Check if you are using the latest hardware drivers for your modem, network card, or other related hardware.

You can use a product like Driver Genius or Radar Sync to verify you have the latest drivers and help keep all your drivers up-to-date. If you're comfortable with driver installations, you can individually find and install current drivers.

Try the connection again at a later time.
