How to reboot your equipment if you have an indoor modem:

1.    Push the power button on the router and the modem; or unplug the equipment from the power outlet.

2.    Wait at least 30seconds for your devices to cool down and allow your devices to recognize they are offline.  

3.    Press the power button again to turn the modem back on, or, if unplugged, plug the modem back in to its power source.  

4.    Wait at least 1 minute for your modem to connect back to the ISP.

5.    Now power on or plugin the rest of your equipment.

6.    Wait at least 2minutes to allow your router to boot up. This will also give your devices such as computers and smart phones time to find the new signal.

7.    It may be necessary to restart computers and other wireless devices if some of the devices are online and others aren't.
