How to troubleshoot router errors?
A lot of times, the Internet seems not to work. All videos buffer, photos cannot be downloaded, and you are not able to listen to songs. This issue is usually attributed to the router. Let’s help you fix that –
- Many times, your router has to process excessive traffic. This causes connectivity to fluctuate. To stop this from happening, turn the power off for some moments. Then turn it back on. This gives the router a relief from continuous working.
- The temperature of the router will steeply increase due to continuously exchanging information. When the air vents get blocked, this will lead to overheating. This will damage the internal parts of the router resulting in reduced reliability. We recommend you to switch off the router for a few minutes so that it reaches normal temperature.
- Kicking and pulling the router loosens the wire lines. Ensure that the cables connecting the router are all intact and tight. Removing all cables and plugging them back in might also help.
- Also, make sure that no metallic objects or microwave block the signals of the router.
If all these tips don’t resolve the issue, you should consider lending a hand from the technician. Do not try to fix it on your own.
