Check router settings

Most routers have built-in blacklists that can restrict certain devices’ internet access when connected to that particular router.

Most if not all network issues on Android can be fixed by resetting the Android network stack. Here’s how.

  • Scroll down and tap on System.
  • Tap Advanced.
  • Tap on Reset options.
