Hi there. I was following instructions given by an expert on malwarebytes.org, and one of them was to "flush the DNS" by resetting the router. After doing this, I lost all connections throughout the house. Now, my dad has managed to get the three wired connections working, but the wireless connectivity was lost and is not back. I am relatively good with computers, but when it comes to routers and internet connections etc. I'm completely out of my depth. The LAN is intact, but the wireless networks will not connect.

Before I reset the router everything was working fine.

I'm not sure what I'm meant to post with this, please ask if there is information or tests you want me to do.

Thanks in advance.

before the reset did the wireless connection require a password? basically after a router reset every setting on the router goes back to default so you'll have to log into the router again and reconfigure all of the wireless settings
