1. Open Preferences.
2. Click Connection in the left navigation.
3. Under "Test your GoToMeeting connection", click Test Connection.
4. Under "Test Results", you'll see one of the following messages:
- Passed: You've established a connection.
- Fail: You haven't established a connection. See Join Help and FAQs for troubleshooting info.

5. Click OK when finished.
The GoToMeeting Connection Wizard tests and determines the ideal connection settings that GoToWebinar can make within your network. After running the wizard, you can store your optional connection settings on your Windows computer and use those settings in the future to connect to sessions.
1. To begin the test, download the GoToMeeting Connection Wizard.
Note: Are you running GoToWebinar v8.7.0, b7155? Download the older version of the Connection Wizard here.
2. Open the G2MConnectionWizard.exe file and run the software when prompted.
3. When the GoToMeeting Connection Wizard launches, click Run the Connection Wizard to start the connection test. GoToMeeting's home page should launch in your default browser. If you're not redirected to www.gotomeeting.com, open your browser and go to that page.
Note: Users should use Advanced Mode only under guidance from a LogMeIn representative.
4. Click OK to continue. The Connection Wizard will determine the best connection setting for your computer when connecting to GoToMeeting. This process may take a few minutes to complete.
5. Once the detection process is complete, click Next.
