The communication between the meters and ION Services has been broken.

Open Services by clicking on the Windows button and typing it in.

Step 1:
Scroll to the ION Network Router Service and restart it and all its dependencies (or start them if they are already not running)

Step 2:
Arrange the list by Startup Type so that all the Automatic services are grouped together. This is done by simply clicking the button Startup Type on the top.

Look for any PME related services (such as those starting with ION or SQL) that have Startup Type as Automatic, but don't have the Status as Running.
Right click on those services and choose Start.
An example could be that ION Log Inserter Service isn't running, and needs to be started.
