I am writing to complain about a faulty wireless router that I bought from you.
My name is George and I purchased a wireless router from your shop recently. I usually work from home and my work involves taking online classes, talking to students over the phone and giving feedback. So, I need to connect to more than one device at a time using the router which you have provided.
Due to this, my work is getting hindered as I am unable to connect to internet on my phone when I am connected to my laptop. Initially, I thought it might be the problem with the internet service provider and raised a complaint with them. However, the service provider was able to connect to multiple devices simultaneously using a different router which proved that it is the router which is faulty.
I request you to please take necessary action to replace the faulty router as soon as possible. In case you are unable to replace the item, I demand a complete refund.
Awaiting for your reply.
