    If other systems in the house have Internet access, then this problem may be caused by one of the following reasons:

    1. Most Common: Your ECU lost connection to your home wifi (See Solution)
    2. Your Router/modem could have a hardware issue such as a port failure, or…
    3. Your system has a firewall that is blocking access, or…
    4. Some older routers have a very limited number of IP addresses available or a fixed IP and your existing computer equipment has already taken all the IP addresses available.

    A classic symptom of this would be that the ECU would display something as follows:
