New For some reason I can't access my wireless with any devices. I have a netgear R7000. I've been through some of the troubleshooting steps (updating firmwhere, resetting etc) and have gotten nowhere. Any other suggestions? I did switch to a new computer a few days ago but the wireless worked fine after switching. Thanks

What LEDs are lit on the router?

 

Does your PC see the WiFi but can't connect or can it not even see it?  If the latter can it see any WiFi - maybe a neighbor's?

My PC is wired to the router so i can access the internet fine with my PC.  the lights on are the power button, the button next to it and the number one (both of these are blinking). When I look for available networks, I don't see mine.  I was able to log into the router setting on the web and it says wireless is off.  In the advanced setings screen under wireless settings for my network there is a red x.  I click on it and I can't see all the details for the network but nothing that I can see to check or uncheck.

Hope you don't mind RKinner I would like to suggest a couple of things.

 

If the WiFi doesn't work on any device it really sounds like the WiFi radios have been turned off, check and see if the WiFi radio button on the right side of the router is lit, if it is not lit hold the button for 2 seconds. The 2.4 and 5 GHz LEDs on the front should also be solid white.
