Modem display shows wifi signal; devices cannot detect

Earlier today I was trying to play a PC game online. My ping was spiking every 10 seconds or so. In an annoyed haste I went into my modem settings and turned off the wireless until I was done to fix the issue. After I turned it back on the modem settings show the wireless radio being enabled. The front of the modem shows the wifi light on, but none of my devices can detect a signal. I've restarted the modem half a dozen times without any success. I'm using an Actiontec Q1000 modem from CenturyLink. The wireless radio is enabled in the Wireless Settings section. In the Modem Status section says the radio is disabled. I'm now quite sure what is going on at the moment. For the record, I have done this before without this issue and I'm still getting internet access through ethernet cables--just not wirelessly.
