If that is the case, you will have to get inside the router’s settings to check if everything is OK. To access the settings, make sure you have the correct Arris router login details. You can find the login details on the router itself, but if you have changed the credentials in the past, you will have to add those in the correct fields. 

If you are aware of the router’s login details yet unable to log in successfully, you won’t be able to tweak the settings.
