  • in order for a virus to be on your router someone would need to inject code through an RCE/Buffer Overflow or rewrite the firmware (which is generally signed and encrypted by the vendor) or maybe load some config that does some code injection. In short it is unlikely.

    Check if the firmware is the latest - if not upgrade it. If router is still not right factory reset and reconfigure.
