Your kiosk is connected to your internet router by WiFi or via an ethernet cable. If it is WiFi, please check if you have any other devices or equipment connected to your site's WiFi and if these devices have connectivity. If your kiosk has a WiFi connection and testing of other devices suggests the WiFi is not operational, please refer this to your site administrator or IT department for resolution.
To investigate further, you will need to have access to the internal cabinet of the kiosk, which is locked with a key.
