In this article, I will describe you here how to troubleshoot your home network router. First, you need to know all the instructions of network setup’s guide, but your connection is not working for any reason but no need to worry about it. Follow these troubleshooting instructions to differ and short out network issues in your router.



Wi-Fi Security Mismatched

It seems like that most common problems are wireless networks setup issues and incompatibility in settings between two Wi-Fi devices (such as the router and a PC) will prevent them from being able to make a network connection. Do follow these steps

Steps1.  In the network mode, a router needs to be enabled to support all versions of Wi-Fi used by network clients. For example: routers configured to run in “802.11g only” mode will not support 802.11n or old 802.11b devices. You need to change the router to run in mixed mode to fix this kind of network failure.

Step2:  In security mode:  Wi-Fi devices support network security protocol with different roles of WPA and WEP). In this Wi-Fi devices and router use the same local network and whatever security mode select that must be same.

Step3: In security Key, We use digits, letters or symbols to make a Wi-Fi key.  We set the Wi-Fi key in the router. To come in network, all device must be same key which has set in the router. And mostly home network routers support only one key that all devices must be share for that particular router. Some new routers have come in the market which has stored multiple Wi-Fi security keys.


MAC Address Restrictions:

We discuss MAC address restrictions. We already know as many as routers are coming into the market that all support a feature called MAC address filtering, but by default it’s disabled. But whosoever will be router admin that can use this feature to restrict the connections to only certain devices as per MAC address number.
