Hi.

In my Router (RT-AX88U Merlin) it appears that the language setting has changed, and the Wi-Fi setting has been switched off. I have no idea what else has occurred.

What steps can I take to see what else has been affected?


See screenshot and logs ..

Power down your router.

Disconnect from your ISP.

Reset your router/network fully.

Do not use old passwords.

Do not connect to your ISP until you're sure you have fully reset your router with a computer you know is secure and fully updated and recently scanned.

BTW, your screen shot is too small to read.

And make sure you are not allowing remote access.

Administration , Allow Access from WAN ....... turned off.

Done, done, done, done, and done. Yeah, Im still getting use to Windows (I'm a mac user) so I'm not sure how to take better screenshots yet.

Thanks for the help, really appreciated.

Done, it took awhile, but fingers crossed nothing happens again.
