  1. Don't assume it's anything you did or didn't do. Verify that all cables are connected securely to the proper device. When you look at the cables inspect them for damage. This can save your hours of troubleshooting and maybe some money. You may have a Virus. Try a different browser such as Firefox.RouterReset
