My WiFi Isn’t Working: How to Fix it
There are few things as frustrating as your home Wi-Fi going out and not knowing why. So much of our daily lives revolve around having a reliable home network. When your Wi-Fi isn’t working, try these trouble shooting steps to fix it.
Restart Modem and Router
It seems so simple, but this should always be the first step when trying to fix your Wi-Fi. If your Internet service provider (ISP) is experiencing issues, rebooting your modem and router can help reconnect you to Wi-Fi.
Diagnose the Problem
If restarting your router doesn’t do the trick, then take a look at the front of your router or modem. If the 5G or 2G lights are off or flickering, there may be an issue with one or both frequencies. Your device may perform better on one frequency over the other. There are a lot of variables in diagnosing your Wi-Fi issue. For more specific guidance, contact your ISP or a technician directly.
