Some troubleshooting at your end

  • Check your internet connection. Sometimes, the internet is down or there is some network outage in your area. You should call your Internet Service Provider to resolve the issue.
  • Make sure that the router is not damaged and is updated with the latest firmware.
  • Confirm that the ethernet cables are not damaged and are properly secured to the ports.
  • Online streaming requires a large bandwidth. So, if it is not working properly, then you should remove one or two devices that might be draining the bandwidth. You can also opt for a plan with more bandwidth.
  • Make sure that there is no obstacle between the WiFi router and your device. Also, ensure that the device and the router are within range of each other.
  • Remove any other device or gadget that might be interfering with the signals.
