    • Turn OFF your WiFi through your WiFi settings.
    • Turn OFF your Microsoft Lumia , wait 10 seconds and turn it back ON.
    • Go back into Settings > WiFi and connect to your WiFi network.

      • Unplug your internet modem from its power adapter located usually behind it.
      • Wait 30 seconds.
      • Plug your internet modem back to its power adapter.
      • Wait 5 minutes for the modem to boot completely.
      • Try reconnecting with your Microsoft Lumia.
