What Is Shaw Community?

 

The Shaw Community is the place to connect with other Shaw customers, Shaw experts, and Shaw moderators. It's a place to get help, and to help others. In The Shaw Community you'll find a knowledge base containing informative articles on using your services, devices, and equipment, and a forum for even more help, or just a casual chat.

So what do you get out of Shaw Community?

 

Get help and information from Shaw experts

Articles

 

Maybe you want to learn about your Shaw hardware, you're trying to set up your phone's email app, or you want to fix a service that isn't working quite the way it should. Well, there's an article for that. Shaw Community's extensive knowledge base is divided into three types categories for each of our services, so it's easy to find what you need. And if you register on Shaw Community, you can follow the articles that matter to you so that you're always up to date. Only registered Shaw Community members can follow content.

 

Fix

If you've encountered a complication with your Shaw service, or with one of the devices that you use with your Shaw service, check out our Fix category. There you'll find solutions to common and uncommon problems, and information about where to find the answers you need.

 

Setup

So you have a new device, or you've just had your Shaw services installed, and you want to know how to set up your hardware, software, wiring, and everything else. The Setup category contains information on whatever you need to know to get your Shaw services, and your connected hardware, working the way you want it to.

 

Learn

How is a DCT different from a DPT? How can you test the speed of your Internet connection? The articles in our Learn category have all of the answers.

 

You can find the above categories on the community home page, sorted by the type of Shaw service. Clicking the service type will show you the featured topics for each category.
