    When 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 switch 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 meetings' connection. 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.
