Most routers have a rest button; usually on the back. Many hide it and only allow access by inserting something like a paper clip into small hole (identified as the reset). Typically one holds the reset button for about ten seconds... But the manual for your router will confirm...

If you google, yahoo etc. for user manual for your router... Likely you will find it on-line, and can check how to reset... Even try a simple power down - kill the mains in completely by removing the mains plug from wall outlet. Wait a minute or so and then power up... This often resolves connection issue.

If you do true reset... you will have to re-apply/enter any security measures you had prior to reset. This includes anything aimed at wifi security...

Sounds like it's time to reset the router via instructions in the manual.
