I’ve checked router connection and i found that there was no issue with the router. I’ve even verified network configuration settings.  As I understood that, it is more likely an ISP issue as modem, router and network connections are working perfect. I also verified that my  net cable is connected to the modem.

So, I called my ISP and explained the issue.

I’ve not used any utility or software for monitoring my internet connection as i have used ping command to monitor downtime. I’ve followed below steps to monitor connection.
