  6. Follow the prompts on screen to diagnose the issue and get troubleshooting tips to resolve it.

Ignite HomeConnect will run several diagnostic checks to find out if connectivity to the device is strong enough to support what you're trying to do (surfing the web, streaming video, gaming, etc.).

If the test finds that there may be a problem with the connectivity of the device, you'll be given troubleshooting tips to resolve the problem.

Note: The Troubleshoot a Device functionality is unavailable when Ignite WiFi Pods (Gen 2) (formerly known as Fibre+ WiFi Pods) have been installed on your network. Shaw is looking at future enhancements to enable this.
