Router not connecting to my modem

I purchased my Nighthawk R6700V2 in June of 2017.  It has worked fine until today when I moved is location in my office. I only unplugged the power on both the modem and the router however when attempted to reconnect, my modem started up but he router is not making any connections.  It is not showing up in my available networks.  Any suggestions.

Model: R6700|Nighthawk AC1750 Smart WiFi Router

Yes, I must have hit those led lights by accident. It is working now but I would have thought that the text support person I spoke to would have mentioned that. 

 

Thanks

   So, no wireless networking?  Did you test the LAN Ethernet ports?
What do the LED indicators indicate?  Have you pointed a web browser at
the router's own web site (some name like "routerlogin.net", or an IP
address like "192.168.1.1")?

   Did you, by chance, touch either of the rightmost two LED indicators
on the top panel?  The ones which are more than LED indicators?

   If you don't already have the appropriate user manual, then visit
http://netgear.com/support , put in your model number, and look for
Documentation.  Get the User Manual.  Look for "WiFi On/Off button with
LED".  Other things are possible, but "moved its location" is
suggestive.
