Nighthawk R7000 won't connect to internet.

My Netgear Nighthawk R7000 won't connect to the internet. It was working fine this morning, had to move some things around, and accidentally bumped the WiFi button (turning it off). Didn't realize that I hit the WiFi button so went through the usual routine...cycled the power. Cycled the power and the battery pack. Then performed a factory reset. Finally realize I bumped the WiFi button, turned it back on, but still can't connect. I can detect the WiFi network but I'm "connected without internet". No idea what to do next. If I plug directly into the modem with an ethernet cable the internet works fine, so there isn't an outage in my area or anything. On the router the internet light is amber. Everything else is white and appears good to go.

Re: Nighthawk R7000 won't connect to internet.

What modem do you have it connected to? 

Make sure to power off both the modem and the router for a couple minutes. 

Make sure nothing is connected to the modem or the router. 

then power the modem on and wait 2 minutes. 

Then connect the modem to the router and power the router on. 

Wait 2 minutes. 

then attempt setup/usage of the router.
