Most routers have a reset button on them somewhere. Typically, with the unit turned on and booted, you press and hold the button for 10 seconds and release and the unit resets to factory defaults. Of course, you'd want to confirm that with your router's documentation as some are different.

Have you checked Device Manager to see what it's reporting for your network interface? Is it disabled and needing only to be re-enabled?

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.

Please let us have the make and model number of the router and the same for the computer.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
