R7000P WiFi turned off

Hey All,

 

I have an R7000P which I have been using with no issues for ~2 years. This morning, the WiFi networks both just turned off. I gave it some time, and they didn't turn back on so I started investigating. To this point I have manually checked, turned off and turned back on the networks, but that didn't solve the problem. I have also updated the firmware to the latest version shown on the NetGear website, but I'm still having the same issue. The router itself isn't showing the WiFi networks light as on, but the settings within the router are showing them as enabled. 

Admittedly, the router is saying they are off, but I can't figure out what is causing this to happen.

Any help on this would be appreciated!

 

Thanks!

Did you try pushing the wifi on/off button for 2 seconds? 

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

I didn't know that was a thing. I suspect that my dumb*ss cat stepped on it.

 

Thank you so much!

Your moggie is not the first, and won't be the last, to have done that.

 

Maybe it was looking for somewhere warm to sit.
