Ethernet works Wireless does not

I have reset and turned on and off the router tens of times and the ethernet from the modem to the router works and the ethernet to my devices from the router works but the wireless is not working and not popping up in my devices. The blinker that would previously turn on stopped all of a sudden.

Re: Ethernet works Wireless does not

The ethernet cable is plugged into the correct place. Also I need to mention that the 2.4GHz and 5.0GHz are not blinking.

   Is that accurate?  Not an R6700v2 or R6700v3?  Look for "Model" on
the product label.  Firmware version?

   Maker?  Model number?  (Is it a modem or a modem+router?)

   _Which_ "The blinker" is that?  Now that we might guess that it
(whatever it is) is not blinking, perhaps you might reveal what it _is_
doing?

 

   Visit http://netgear.com/support , put in your (actual) model number,
and look for Documentation.  Get the User Manual (at least).  Read.
Look for the LED descriptions and "Troubleshoot".  Note that these
indicators have identifying names.  Look for something like "WiFi On/Off
button with LED".  Did you press it?  Further reading might not hurt,
either.

   It's nice that you're happy, but revealing where both ends of your
"The ethernet cable" go would be more helpful than your assertion of
correctness.

 

> [...] the 2.4GHz and 5.0GHz are not blinking.

 

   An astute observer might notice that "always off" and "always on" are
both "not blinking", and yet they differ.  Again, what they're _not_
doing is typically less interesting than what they _are_ doing.
