Restoration of WiFi signal.

Thank you for your response Z92, can I explain a little more.

My smart TV is currently connected by an Ethernet cable; are you saying I can press the pin hole reset button on the router and this will restore the wireless WiFi as it was before?

What are the drawbacks in doing if I do this ?

Re: Restoration of WiFi signal.

If you press and hold the reset button for at least 60 seconds, and then wait several minutes for the router to reinitialise it will reset to how it was when it was first installed. You will lose any changes you have made since you first installed the router. For example, if you have changed the WiFi password then this will revert back to the password you were given when the hub was installed.

Re: Restoration of WiFi signal.

Hi Z92 once again thanks, with regards to restoration of the wifi signal;

The reason I turned it off was because my signal was hacked and used by a neighbour.

Is there anyway I can stop this after resetting and restoring the router set-up?

Re: Restoration of WiFi signal.

If you visit the router settings, you can change the WiFi name and password:

Not amazing at all. WiFi is extremely variable depending on local conditions and building materials.
