Having problems connecting to iFollow on your laptop? Here a few tips:
- Try turning your broadband/Wi-Fi off for 2 minutes to clear the cache about an hour before the match.
- Restart your laptop
- You can connect via Wi-Fi or you can plug an ethernet cable directly into your router and laptop.
- If you are having trouble connecting try changing your browser. You can use Chrome (although a lot of people have reported they have buffering with this) Firefox, Microsoft Edge or Dolphin or try any other browser.
- If you have an Amazon firestick you use Silk
- Check your broadband speed:
- Type “broadband speed test” in your browser (Chrome, Edge etc or use Google)
- Select “run speed test”. The test will take under a minute, you are looking for a download speed greater than 20Mbs for a reasonable viewing experience.
