My wifi has completly stopped working. I can get internet through ethernet cable but none of my equipment can see wifi anymore, its just not there. Is there a way to connect to modem settings page through ethernet cable? I know you can through wifi web address but it dont work on ethernet cable connection.

Try browsing to 192.168.1.1 using the ethernet connection and your browser; alternately try 192.168.1.1:8080 

If either of those work, what url is showing in the browser's address bar after that?

Your VPN might be blocking access to the local network through the Ethernet cable. There's a setting in that software. Or just disconnect/close the VPN for now.

I got it fixed I was trying to fix a double nat issue and put unit in bridge mode, after that all internet stopped and I couldn't get back into viasatmodems settings page to change unit back. I can't get rid of the double nat issue which is stopping me from accessing my media server outside my home.
