2. Refresh your router network settings.

Go to Home > Settings > Network > Advanced settings > Alternate MC address > Clear > Restart.

Go to Home > Settings > Disc and blue ray > Persistent storage > Clear persistent storage. Repeat this process three times.

Go to the Avatar Icon > select the Add New option to download your profile.
