Unfortunately my SSID can not be seen by the PC anymore. I have tested the PC on other WiFi connections which works fine. It seems that only previously registered hardware can see my SSID incl. Phones etc.
Apart from checking the PC drivers and setup I also checked my Netgear router to make sure that the SSID Broadcast settings are switched on for both the 2.4 and 5 GHz WiFi. I have rebooted the router several times and removed power etc.
At one point a YouSee techie reset the router remotely. While it was rebooting the SSID became visible for a short time but when I tried to connect, I got an error message about being unable to connect and the SSID disappeared from my list of available networks again.
I have also checked the access and deny lists on the router but they are not set and have never been used.
Is there another setting on the router that may prevent new hardware connecting?
Any suggestions would be welcome.

I guess you have tried switching to another wifi channel. On wifi there is a lot of noise from eg old bluetooth device, burglar alarms, heating systems, wirelesss keyboards/mouse, baby monitors.
Sometime wifi devices don't mix. There are so many combinations of speeds, cryptation etc. and the vendors don't always agree on the wifi standards. In our home I had to only use only AES cryptation for all wifi devices to get access to the router, and I reduced the maximum speed a bit to get a more reliable wifi.
