Having to restart router very often

Every few hours my Internet gets disconnected, hard rebotting the router seems to resolve the issue. It used to happen far less frequently before (once every month or so) but now it happens quite a few times a day. Is this a problem with the router or the network itself?

I had the router changed and that fixed the problem for me. Call tech support, get approval for a router change, than either pick up or get a new router delivered.

Same is happening to me every few hours my Internet gets disconnected, hard rebotting the router seems to resolve the issue. It used to happen far less frequently before, but now it happens quite a few times a day. It's very hard to get technical support, even their website Jack virtual assisstant does not work, I could not find the number for support, absolutely zero support from fido.

Your live chat does not work, why don't you try it yourself and let me know. thanks

Hey @cencris it might be a little slower due to higher volumes. You can always try again later or give them a call at any time!

Hey @rahbirul, welcome to the community!

 

I have a few questions!

 

  • Have you recently changed the modem's place?
  • What color lights do you see on the router?

Thanks!
