Is it hacked? - June 12th 2015, 01:46 PM

Hi everyone, recently my routers been acting up. It doesnt wor during the day. The wifi is on but I cant access any websites on my ipod even though its connected. It usually came back at about 8 oclock but yesterday it was gone all day. Also,coincidentally my tv box is making some static qppear on the tv. Are they both hacked or not or is it a coincidence?

It probably needs to be replaced. To be sure, try connecting a Ethernet cable to the router to a laptop and see if you can connect through it. If not, try resetting the router. Unplug everything for about a minute, reconnect it, turn it back on, and try through the Ethernet cable again. Don't connect through your modem, but the router. If you have issues still, try connecting directly to the modem. If that works, replace the router.

Another possibility is that your service provider is having issues and everyone under that server is having issues. But your router does sound really old and may need to be replaced. That's the most probably answer.

It was a problem on Belkins side. I changed the DNS code that I saw at the PC world website and it's fine! Thanks everyone!

That's weird. If the DNS wasn't valid, I don't understand how you had any connectivity at all. Anyway, at least it's working.
