  • Check if the ethernet cable is connected to the router firmly. If it isn’t, adjust it. If it doesn’t adjust, use a new one.
  • Check if the router is reviving the internet signals. If it doesn’t restart the router. If that doesn’t work, have the router checked by the company.
  • Use a powerful adapter. Weak adapter will not get things done. The adapter should be at least 12V-2A equivalent power adapter.
