Call your ISP to see if they have a problem in your area. If they are generally OK ask what they "see" about your connection.

Let's see if I understand this: you can get on the internet through wifi but you can't get connected by being plugged into the modem/router?

If that is the case, you might need to reset the modem and router. Sometimes a brownout can cause the DHCP to "lose" the IPs it hands out.

I can't help if you are using a gateway (modem and router in one). I've only reset a 2 unit setup with a separate modem and a router attached to the modem.
