Mediacom WiFi Not Working
1) Check you wired internet connection
To start with, you need to figure out the issue behind the WiFi outage. You need to either plug in a device on your main ethernet line or connect some other device through an ethernet output port with your router. If you are able to have internet access on it, that means your connection is fine and now you need to worry about the Wi-Fi.
Another easy method to have it checked is the Internet light on your router. If the light is green and steady, that means your internet connection is fine. Further troubleshooting steps, you can try is.
2) Enable WiFi from router panel
The occurrence is very rare as most routers come with Wi-Fi enabled as default. However, you will need to still give it a look. You need to check your router settings by logging in to the admin panel of your router. Hereunder Wi-Fi settings or WAN settings, you will find a switch that enables or disables the Wi-Fi. You need to turn it on if it is on off to have Wi-Fi connectivity. Another thing that you can do if the switch is already on is to toggle it once or twice and it will start working for you again. Be mindful that you will need to restart your router after changing these settings.
3) Reboot your router
In any case, rebooting is the perfect solution for you. It works most of the time. If you have enabled the Wi-Fi now, or even if it was enabled before, you will need to reboot your router. It will restart al the hardware and software components on your router so you can have complete connectivity. Restarting is simple and it is worth a try if you are having such issues.
4) Reset settings to default
If none of the above options have worked for you, you will need to reset the router settings to default. Most routers come with a reset button at the back that is small and located right beside the power button. All you need to do is keep it pressed for 10-15 seconds and your router will be reset to its default settings. You need to make sure that you know what settings you need to modify such as SSID, encryption type, and password as they will all be set to default.
