Routers are generally simple to reboot — just turn it OFF or unplug it, then turn it ON or plug it back in after 10 seconds or so. In any case, savvy routers make this cycle significantly simpler. For instance, Linksys routers can be rebooted by accessing the Linksys app and tapping on the Restart Router button in the Network Administration settings. You do not need to be close to your router to do this. For specific instructions on how this is done, click here.

Rebooting your router will clear out malicious codes brought about by malware.
