Personally, I would be inclined to "hard reset" the router back to the factory default settings and set it up again from scratch. It's a bit of a pain, but router operating systems, like any other "computer", can become confused and require a reboot to get them running properly again.

Have a look in the manual for instructions to perform a "hard reset".

Normally pressing the button briefly performs a "soft reset", which just restarts the router, but doing something like keeping it pressed for 10 seconds or until certain lights flash will "hard reset" it back to the factory settings. The procedure is different for the various models.
