To restart your wireless router, you can plug it out and plug it back in again, or press the off button, and press it again to turn it on. It all depends on the type wireless router you have at home.

Press the Xbox One button on your controller, then select Settings. After that, open All Settings and navigate to Network > Network Settings. Finally, click on Test Network Connection and keep an eye out for any major errors.
