Router issues fix

Have you encountered no internet or connection loss errors before? Congrats, you are also a part of the tribe. We live in the information age where most information comes from the internet. So for obvious reasons, the internet is an essential part of our life. The internet has impacted our lives so much that we can’t imagine a day without it. Considering that, what if your router falls into an error or glitch and your internet connection is down? We know even imagining this would have given you so much pain. So let’s see how to encounter such issues.

In this blog, we will see some common router problems that occur without any prior signs. So, read the blog till the end to equip yourself with the knowledge to deal with internet connection issues.

Problem 1: Slow or No Wi-Fi Internet Access in Some Rooms

Your router emits radio waves in all directions. So, if the router is kept in a corner of the house, it is more likely that the opposite corner of the house will receive less or no internet connection. You need to put the router in a centralized location in your home. The closer you can put it to the centralized location, the better will be the internet coverage area throughout your home.

If you live in an apartment building, chances are that the other routers might be interfering with your router. You can use free software like NetSpot on Mac, Windows, or Wi-Fi Analyzer for Android to see the nearby wireless networks and the channels from which they are connected. If your router coincides with other routers in some rooms, try switching to a less congested channel.

If that also doesn’t solve the problem, your home might be too big for the router to cover. In that case, you should opt for a Wi-Fi range extender. It can help to remove Wi-Fi dead zones.

Problem 2: No Device can Connect to Wi-Fi

If you are unable to connect to Wi-Fi, try using some other devices and see if the problem lies with that device only. If the problem lies with other devices too, try connecting the laptop to the router using an ethernet cable.

If the problem still persists, your internet may be down. You can contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP) and ask if the problem lies from their side. 

Resetting the router is helpful in solving numerous issues occurring with the internet connection. You need to press the power button present on the back of the router for 10-15 seconds, and the router will be set to default factory settings.

Problem 3: The network connects but there is no internet access

In this case, you should try resetting the modem. Unplug the modem from the electrical outlet and plug it back in again after a few seconds. If that also doesn’t resolve the problem try connecting the laptop and the router with the help of an ethernet cable. If this works, then there are chances that the problems lie inside the router. In that case, you need to reset the router to get your internet back working again.
