    Network settings are basically internet settings. you should confirm the internet settings from your isp like- which connection type do you have, etc.

    Also, check the internet connection on your modem. be sure your modem is not dropping the connection. if it does. It’s a problem from your isp and that case, you have to call your isp and ask them to fix the problem for you.

    A long time ago, I had similar problem with my wireless router. To fix it, I had to update the firmware firmware.

    According to me, before going for any troubleshooting steps.

    Firstly, you should check for the router update.

    Once you will update your router. it will start working fine.

    How can I tell which one is the best product among those mentioned on the list here? If your Netgear router is not working buy a new one from Netgear official website also from a third-party reseller.

    Hi…try a firmware upgrade if it’s available for your router. You can also try a hard reset by pressing the pinhole in the back for 30 seconds. You’ll have to rerun the configuration wizard to detect your type of internet.
