If you connect the computer to the modem, you are able to download the files.
But if you connect it through the router, it is not working.
the problem is with the router. Cogeco is a cable ISP.
you can reduce the MTU settings on the router. If MTU on the router is 1500 then Make it 1300.
Under security settings, disable the firewall on the router and disable the Block internet request.
If it doesn't work then try to upgrade the Firmware of the router.

Locked up


Some brands of consumer routers are notorious for randomly locking up, dropping connections etc.

A quick fix would be to reset the router to factory defaults. This is done by pressing the RESET button for 30 seconds and reboot the router.


The best thing you can is to make sure you keep the firmware up to date. This is a file that can be downloaded from the manufacturer's website. The files are very specific so make sure you have the full model# and version of your router.

Once you have downloaded the firmware from Belkin's website, connect to you router with a wired connection (NOT wireless) and click on the option to upgrade software/firmware.

Firmware updates usually fix a whole slew of issues and should stop your router from locking up so often. Remember to enable security (WPA2 encryption) on your wireless network when you are finished with the upgrade, no reason to leave your network unsecured.

I Hope this helps,

Go to the Belkin support section at their website: http://www.belkin.com/support/

Look for your model router and download the "firmware" upgrade for it. Once you go install the up to date firmware try to give the router a reset. Hopefully doing all that will get the router working again and you connecting to the Internet.
