No wifi but can connect with cable

So, my wifi isn't working, but i can connect with cable and its fine.... I have restarted and reset. I see a lot about turning on/off wifi button and mine doesnt have that. So I went on the router login and idk what to do from there bc it says it is enabled. my firmware is up to date as far as i can tell.

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

 

> [...] my wifi isn't working, [...]

 

   "not working" is not a useful problem description.  It does not say
what you did.  It does not say what happened when you did it.  As usual,
showing actual actions (commands) with their actual results (error
messages, LED indicators, ...) can be more helpful than vague
descriptions or interpretations.

 

> [...] it says it is enabled. [...]

 

   For the non-psychics in your audience who can't see what you're
seeing, what, exactly, says what, exactly?  Are you looking for the
right name (SSID)?

 

> [...] my firmware is up to date as far as i can tell.


   How far is that?  With my weak psychic powers, I can't tell.  Does
your "up to date" firmware have a version number?

 

> [...] I see a lot about turning on/off wifi button [...]

 

   What, exactly, do you see where, exactly?

 

   Visit http://netgear.com/support , put in your (actual) model number,
and look for Documentation.  Get the User Manual.  Read.  Look for the
LED descriptions and "Troubleshoot".  Pay particular attention to the
"WiFi On/Off button with LED".  Did you press it?  (Further reading
might be helpful, too.)

 

> [...] and mine doesnt have that. [...]

 

   Of course it doesn't.  You're right, and the book is wrong.

So, you get on here to be a **bleep**? Not actually help people? Thanks 👍 Hope you feel better inside.

   I can't help anyone who can't/won't provide even a little useful
information about his/her problem.

 

   If you actually want some help, and consulting the User Manual
doesn't do the job, then you might consider answering the pending
questions.  Or, perhaps some psychic will come along who _can_ see your
LED indicators, what you're doing, and what happens when you do it.  You
have my best wishes in your further endeavors.

Re: No wifi but can connect with cable

Did you try the wireless on/off button as @antinode recommended. 

Its the 2nd button from the right.

Push and hold it for 2 seconds. 

 

You can find the manual here: https://www.netgear.com/support/product/r6700

 

did it work? 

Current Setup: CM2000-> RBK750-> GS716v2-> RAXE500-> Pi-hole->
