Why Do I Need to Keep Restarting My Router?

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

There are a number of so called problem solving sites which instructs us to plug off the modem, wait for 10 seconds and plug back the power and all o a sudden the router works and I can enjoy my networking. How is this possible? I haven't done anything and instantly the router works this sometimes leads me to frustration. I want to know the reason behind this and the actual method in solving this problem. Thanks.

3. Drop down the “Network Adapters,” one by one update the drivers by selecting “Update Driver Software.”
