Your router ethernet should just work if you haven't changed any settings. What are you trying to do?
Have you also checked your cable?

What device are you using on Ethernet? If Windows, what does the command ipconfig /all report?

I have the ethernet cable plugged into an adapter then another adapter upstairs that has an ethernet cable plugged into my pc, its always worked until now.

If you are using power line adapters, then try resynchronize them as they maybe out of sync with your router.

Sorry, it's the IP addys I'm interested in. There's no need to hide them ; they are just local.

Ah, I'm justified! Your PC has the IP 169.254.100.124 over Ethernet. PC's get that value IP when when they are not told which address to use by the router. Usually a reboot of the PC, reboot of the router, replug the LAN cable or use another router LAN port will cure it.
At the extreme it could be a fault of your powerlines not making a proper connection.
Which router is it? What is the DHCP page of the router? What is the list of currently connected devices?

Since i have rebooted the pc and router quite a few times as well as getting a new ethernet cable and trying all the ports on the back of the router im not sure what else to try.
i have the ee brightbox 2 wireless router
this is the list of currently connected devices https://gyazo.com/4b0c6936fa30a046ac6e3ee8472ddcbf

Are you using power line adapters as I mentioned above?

Then the issue is with the Powerlines. The presence of the PC is not being communicated to the router so the DHCP can allocate a local 192.168.1.x IP to it.Can you check their set-up & connections again?
