Try a hard reset on your tablet.

Be aware that a hard reset will erase all your downloaded apps and user data. It will restore your tablet to a factory default condition. It will be like when you first bought it.

Back up your tablet first using the tablet's backup feature.

Before you perform a hard reset ensure that the tablet's battery is charged.

Do not perform a hard reset with the charger connected.

Once a hard reset has been performed you can restore your tablet to what it was using the backup you made. However it may be that you will reintroduce the problem by doing this, if it was a downloaded app or user defined setting that caused the problem in the first place.

Here is a link that shows how to perform a hard reset.

(This procedure is the same for all Insignia models)

Be patient it takes a few minutes.

I had this problem on my (dad's) Archos tablet on my (his) TP-Link Archer C50 AC1200. All other combinations of the tablet with other routers, or router with other devices work perfectly fine. Also, it's still OK if the router is not connected to the internet (thus only making a wireless network), but as soon as there is an internet connection, it reboots. But factory resetting the tablet did not help at all :-/. As soon as the tablet started re-installing the wifi, it spontaneously rebooted. I worked around it, for now, by installing a different (older, slower) router.
