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?

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!

I have also been experiencing the same thing.  Before was seldom but now is multiple daily.

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.

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!
