  3. Check for any loose or damaged cables connected to the router.

2. Power Cycle Devices:

  1. Unplug the power cord from the router and ONT.
  2. Wait for at least 30 seconds.
  3. Reconnect the power cords to both devices and allow them to restart.

3. Reset the Router:

  1. Locate the reset button on the router, typically a small recessed button or pinhole.
