    Network issues

    ➑️ If you are experiencing slowness or other connectivity issues, we recommend the following:

    1. Check your internet connection. An unstable connection can affect the room not working properly. If possible, try switching to using another network for example an Ethernet cable instead of Wi-fi. 
    2. If you are using a VPN on your computer, this might interfere with the connection the breakout room uses.  If you are in a safe network, you can test if disabling the VPN could restore your connection. This is only recommended if you know you are in a safe network.
