Sounds like you turned off DHCP on your router. DHCP automatically assigns an IP to a device that is connecting to your LAN.

How do I turn off DHCP on router and how do I turn it on?
Expert:  Mac Tech replied 5 years ago.
If you didn't get into your router and make any changes, shut down all your computers and printers. Unplug the router from power for 10 seconds and replug. Then start up your computers and printers, they should each now obtain an IP from the router automatically.
