Lost my wi-fi home network in last Thursday's lightning storm.  Anybody know how to fix it?  Thanks in advance.

1. does a wired connection work?

2. have you tried resetting the router (note you will lose any custom setting so you may want to write them down first)

3, is the router on a surge protector or UPS? (I highly recommend one or the other)

If resetting the router doesn't fix the problem, your router is probably fried and you need to request a new one from VZ.
