Netgear Router not working when setting up printer and asked to reset wsp

I was installing the new printer and asked to press the routers wsp reset button. Now the internet/wifi (we are on satellite) won’t work and appears that the router needs to be reset but don’t know how. I have typed into search bar, 192.168.1.1 and a Sign In box comes up saying Your connection to the site is not private. It asks for a User Name and Password. I tried numbers on back of the router without success - the box just reappears. I am not tech savvy so any help required (we are in lockdown so relying on internet!), so assistance appreciated thank you.

What is this router and what is the printer? (I assume that it is on wifi.)

 

I assume that "wsp reset button" is the WPS  button. That is not necessarily anything to do with "reset". It depends on the unknown model.

So what delivers the Internet to you? The hardware?

 

And what tells you that it does not work?

I have no idea how you reached that conclusion but if that really is needed, this is what to do:

It is also hard to follow what is going on here:

Is this all happening in a browser of some sort with a PC wired into the router?

 

Manuals are always a good place to start.

Visit the support pages:

Feed in your model number and check the documentation for your hardware.

Begin with the Quick Start/Installation Guide.
