Others with better knowledge than i may have the answer but have you tried switching of the router and rebooting aster a couple of minutes,sometimes equipment gets in a twist and a reboot usually does the trick of a reset.

Is wireless disabled in the router setup.

Yep, sounds like wireless is disabled on the router. Is the light on router lit up for Wireless? Is there a switch on the router? if not then connect via ethernet cable and look at the router setup homepage.

Do you have a wifi enabled smart phone or tablet you can use to check whether your wifi is visible , if it is you may need to delete your wireless profile in Windows and re-scan for available routers .

Sometimes profiles get a bit mixed up or become corrupt and need resetting .
