Only connection through powerline, nothing direct with the router

About 3 hours ago I stopped being able to connect to the VM network or the guest network I'd set up. I can only connect to the extension networks through the the powerline adapter. Trying to connect to any of the direct wifi networks gives an error of 'couldn't get ip address' (from my mobile) and the connection just fails totally from my macbook. (none of the three laptops or 4 phones in the house can connect either)

I've tried turning the router off for 30mins and then back on again as well as restarting connecting devices. I can access settings on 192.168.0.1 and everything seems fine. All the checks are coming up green and yet I can't connect. Any thoughts?

Not yet, if only because I'm concerned that the powerline connection will stop working if I do and we'll be left with no wifi at all! If that'll help then I'm all for giving it a try...

You’ll need to do a 60 second pinhole reset

Maybe it work by powerline because your not connecting to your hub but next door by the powerline.
