If no solution does not work then you may have to reset the router. Do not do this until you can connect any device to the network. Resetting the router is the last resort because after that you have to reset the entire network again to restore the internet connection. If you do not know about it then we would suggest that you contact your Internet Service Provider.

We can not give you a precise guide for this because it is different depending on the manufacturer of the router. Before doing this you should check your router's user manual. There is a reset switch in every router. Some routers have a very small button so in some these buttons are hidden in a small hole (it can be pressed through a paper clip). To reset the router this switch has to be pressed for a while. From the flashing lights made on the router you will know that it was reset.

Once this is done wait for the router to start over again and then setup the network. The steps to follow this process will depend on your Internet service provider (ISP) so we suggested to contact the service provider to reset the router.
