My belkin F6D4630-4 router is not working after I attempted to reboot it (as my Xbox troubleshoot said it would help) I can connect to the internet through a cable fine, but trying to connect through wireless, the SSID doesn't even appear! I have tried several things, even resetting to factory settings and re-configuring the router. On the router itself, all of the LED's are on (wired, router, ADSL, internet and 'security' was previously on before I reconfigured) except the wireless LED. So the router isn't sending any wireless connection nor showing its SSID. I have connected to the router through the IP as well but I don't really see what could be wrong. Does anyone have any idea at all why doing a simple router rebooting by turning it off and on has made my wireless go? I can't find a setting for the wi-fi being on/off. The router was recently bought about 3 weeks ago.
