NIghthawk AC2300 suddenly dropped network - won't recognize password

Netgear nighthawk
AC2300 Smart wifi router
Model : R7000P

We lost our WIFI connection and can't get it back. It does not recognize our password. I had previously blocked all new devices from getting access to our network. I am not sure how to change the password now, it keeps telling me the old password is wrong. My admin password is fine. Help?

If you visit the support pages:

Support | NETGEAR

you can feed in your model number and find the documentation for your hardware.

This will tell you how to change the wifi password.

 

Just another user.
