Resetting your modem or router

Resetting your modem can resolve a variety of networking issues. Every modem model has it's own process for performing a reset. It's best to consult your modems manual to make sure you're using the proper method. If you can't find your manual, you may want to contact your internet provider about resetting your modem, or try to find a guide online. Setting up DMZ on your router may help the situation, but please try connecting using your router's default settings as well.
