How to perform a Power Cycle?

  1. Turn the router and modem off
  2. Pull the power-cord from the back of the router and modem
    • This ensures that there is no remaining power left in the hardware and allows it to properly perform a power cycle. Sometimes, when you simply turn off the hardware, it will still have some left-over power and won’t actually turn off or powercycle properly.
  3. Wait 30 seconds to 1 minute
    • This will get rid of any left-over power, once the power cord has been pulled out, and gives the router and modem an opportunity to power cycle.
  4. Plug the power-cords back into the router and modem
  5. Turn on your router and modem
  6. Give the devices time to reconnect, this can take up to 15 minutes.
