If there are proxy extensions active in the browser, immediately turn it off.

Now, check the router, whether all the hardware functions are correctly working or not. After taking the necessary measures, hopefully, the dashboard will open. Lastly, check for any forced IP and MAC address binding. If present, delete and re-enter them.
