Nighthawk X6 R8000 Wifi not connecting

Hey guys
I have no clue what the issue with my Nighthawk is. But the wireless isn't connecting to anything anymore.
When I go into the router settings, it shows no issues whatsoever. Devices can detect a wifi signal coming from it, but no data is making it through.
Cable connection is fine, but wifi is not.
There is nothing to indicate why the data isn't making it through.
And before anyone suggests, the wifi button is indeed turned on.

So I go into the router settings and downgrade to that version?
Sorry, just unsure how to do that.
Won't be able to do it until I get home from work in around 6 hours

Never mind, managed to figure it out. Seems to be working too.
Thanks for the help, guys! I would never have thought it would have been a firmware issue.
