The most straightforward fix for this is to perform a router reset which will revert back all the personalized changes you may have made to default settings.To initiate a factory reset simply push the small RESET button at the back of your router using a safety pin or toothpick for 5-10 seconds when you see the SYS LED lights blinking on the front panel it means the reset is completed.
Note: Factory reset will bring back your router to its default factory settings which includes your Network SSID (name), password, and access control settings (MAC filtration, guest networks). Make sure your router is powered on during this process.
