Texas.Net Tech Tips

Texas.Net tech support rocks, and now we're bringing a little bit of it to the web. This is the self-help section, the area where you get to have a hand at trying the fixes yourself before you use that Internet phone line for a tech support phone line. The problems that we list here are common ones that are fixed easily and quickly. Everything is step-by-step, so you don't have to worry about confusing instructions. In fact, it's as easy as a phone call without the phone call (which we think makes it even easier). So look through our listing and see if your problem's here. If so, great! If not, you know where you can reach us.
