To restart your router, follow these general steps:

  1. Locate your Router: Find your router, which is usually a small box with antennas, often located near your internet modem.
  2. Power Off: Unplug the power cable from the router. Some routers might have a power button that you can use to turn them off.
  3. Wait: Wait for about 10-30 seconds. This gives the router time to fully power down and clear any residual power.
  4. Power On: Plug the power cable back into the router and wait for it to boot up completely. This process can take a minute or two.
  5. Check Connection: Once the router has restarted, check to see if your internet connection is restored by trying to access a website or using another device connected to the network.

If you have a combined modem/router device provided by your internet service provider, the steps may vary slightly. In such cases, you might need to restart the entire device, including both the modem and the router functions.
