How to Fix Blinking Red Light on WiFi Router?

  • Before you begin, disconnect the Ethernet cable that joins the router to the modem. Now using the same cable, connect to the modem’s network on a PC.

  • Reboot your router by powering it down and powering it up after a gap of a minimum of one minute. Reboot works wonders to resolve technical glitches.
  • Fix the router-modem connection. Check that the Ethernet cable connecting the two devices is neither loose nor broken.
