If none of the solutions work, you may need to reset the router. Only do this if you can connect devices to the network. Resetting the router is the last resort, as you will need to reset the entire network to restore your internet connection. If you are not aware of this, we recommend that you contact your internet service provider.
We can’t give you an exact guide for this, because it varies per router manufacturer. Please refer to your router’s user manual before doing this. Each router has a reset switch. Some routers have a very small button, while others have this button hidden in a small hole (this can be pressed with a paperclip). To reset the router, this switch must be held down for a while. You will know it has been reset by the blinking lights on the router.
After this is done, wait for the router to reboot and then set up the network. The steps to follow in this process depend on your ISP, so we recommend that you contact the service provider to reset the router.
