Instead of using a router you can opt to use a modem as well in the system. Follow the steps to rule out router problems:
At first, look for the Ethernet cable attached to the router backside. Once you find this, detach it.
Again locate the other end of the Ethernet cable connected to your computer. In case of the traditional desktop, it is behind CPU whereas this could be sideways in case of laptops/notebook.
Now attach the Ethernet cable directly to your PC and wait till it shows the sign of net connectivity. For better resolution, try visiting some web pages. If browsing is smooth after, this is a sign of your Router problems.
This is indeed a temporary solution only to know whether this is related to Router problems somehow. If the connectivity issue gets resolved, then you have to re-configure the router. Furthermore, you can visit the manufacturer’s support website to know more details on the way to configure the router and get assistance.
