By doing this connection it will determine if the issue is with your router or with the ISP.

If you are connected successfully to the internet now. This means there is an issue with your router. We suggest you call your router manufacturer. As they will be able to see if there is an issue with your router or step you through settings that need to be changed that we are unaware of.
