I have a PC and Laptop connected via ethernet to my router.

This morning neither the PC or laptop recognised the router.

Turning the router on/off meant the PC immediately reconnected.

The laptop will not, hard wired or wireless. It sees other routers, just not my one.

I am running windows 7.

Any ideas?

What's the age of the router?

I have noted that wifi routers have a life expectancy or less than 10 years. The often have the transmitter fail.
