Have you rebooted it not just reset it?

The world is full of rats, Republicans & Democrats.

I seem to recall that a reset routine will set the router back to delivery state/setup; which means wifi will likely (by default) be disabled/switched off (again).

You may need to enter the router management pages and then access wifi section; then re-enable it and re-enter any/all settings/options you made previously.

A simple reboot (which often all that is required when wifi "stops") will do just that; reboot/restart the router - and preserves all the settings you have made/entered (including wifi setup).

✔ Best Answer
Thanks for all the suggestions.It turned out, after contacting my Internet supplier who sent an technician that the Router was faulty and out off date.A new Router was connected and system now fully functional.
