How to re-enable your Wireless

Note: Please make sure you are hardwired into the back of the router (i.e. a cable you’re your computer into one of the four LAN ports in the back of the router) when changing any of the configuration on your router.

1. To start, you need to go to your internet browser e.g. Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, or Mozilla Firefox and type into the address bar and press enter, please see image below:

2. The user log in screen will pop up, you need to enter your username and password which are displayed below if these haven’t been changed.

Username: admin
Password: admin

3. Once you are logged onto your router, on the left-hand side there are some heading, please could you click configuration, wireless and then 2.4G or 5G.

4. You will need to select both wireless bands (2.4G and 5G) one at a time. Once they have been selected, there should be a tick selected in the ‘enable’ box for the wireless, please tick this box if there is no tick and press apply at the bottom of the page and this will reactivate the wireless on the router. As shown below.

Important Note: The wireless can be disabled for several reasons with the most popular cause being the WPS button (located on the back of the router above the lock symbol next to the power socket) being held down for an excessive amount of time.
