Mismatched Router Settings
Network mode: – A router must be enabled to support all versions of Wi-Fi used by the network clients. For example, routers configured to run in “802.11g only” mode will not support 802.11n or old 802.11b devices. To fix this kind of network failure, change the router to run in “mixed mode“.
Security mode:Most Wi-Fi devices support multiple network security protocols (typically different variations of WPA and WEP). All Wi-Fi devices, including routers belonging to the same local network, must use the same security mode.
MAC Address Restrictions
Many network routers support MAC address filtering. With this feature, you can block some computer/phone/tablet/device access your network by filtering their MAC address.
Slow or no internet connections
You can test your internet speed using website speedtest.net. If speeds are still down, the problem is likely with your Internet connection, not your router. Contact your ISP.
If that’s not the issue, it could be that your current wireless channel is overcrowded by your devices, or by those of other nearby networks. Consider changing the channel on your router in your router settings.
If that doesn’t help, performing a factory reset on your router and setting it up again may help. To do that, find a hidden reset button on the back of the router. Use a thin and sharp object like a needle or toothpick to press and hold the button for 10 seconds.
In some cases, your internet provider blocks some websites, and you can’t visit it. You will need to change DNS for your router to Google DNS at 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52 or to Cloudflare DNS at 184.108.40.206, change the DNS might fix your issue.
Too many connections
If you have more than 10–15 wireless clients (which is a common scenario nowadays), you’ll find out that many entry-level wireless routers would begin to become unstable when your wireless user count goes well into the double digits. In many cases, the wireless router would run out of RAM and just crash. To fix it, performing a factory reset on your router and setting it up again may help. To do that, find a hidden reset button on the back of the router. Use a thin and sharp object like a needle or toothpick to press and hold the button for 10 seconds.
