Router make and model number?
If you used the reset button on the back of the router you have wiped out the wireless settings. You need to read the manual to see how to re-enter the admin interface and re-establish the wireless settings.

As Richard59 said, if you've reset the router, it's back to factory defaults and any/all settings made by you previously are gone.

Get the manual out, it will tell you what the default IP address of the unit is so you can connect to the management interface so you can reconfigure it. Remember when setting up the wireless to use the WPA2 encryption.

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.

To get the current correct Router's IP address set your PC LAN to DHCP and connect the PC LAN to the Router's LAN using an ethernet cable then check the connection status if established then click on details to see the default IP address or go to Command prompt and type IPCONFIG /ALL then look at the wired connection and see the Default IP address given then open any browser application without proxy then type this default IP address and press Enter key, then you will be prompted with a username and password interface, put USERNAME: admin, PASSWORD: admin, then you are inside the router for configuration.

SSID: This is the name you will see when Wi-Fi is searched.
Wireless Security: This is the passphrass to Join PC or any device to the wireless network.
MAC Filtering: Is a form of security for your wireless network and it keeps MAC addresses of all devices that can connect. Meaning if a PC/device MAC address is not here, the PC/device would not be able to connect.
Type of Network: Either Static or DHCP. If Static is chosen it mean you will be configuring your Wi-Fi IP addresses manually and more secure while if DHCP is selected the router determines the IP itself and less secure.
