First, try to power cycle your console. The instructions are here. But you can follow these steps: 1. Hold down the console power button for 10 seconds 2. Press console power button (to turn it back on, your cache and some settings will now be cleared)

Optionally: 1. Settings -> System Settings -> Storage -> Clear System Cache

I would also try to unplug/ power off your router/ modem (both if separate). Keep it unplugged for 30 seconds or so before powering back up.
