Hubs do not return online after an outage

While the occasional quirks of HomeKit are far from new in this sub, I have a situation and wonder if anyone else has encountered it or know what I could do. My power / internet went out in a big storm on Friday night. (People Austin HomeKit, imagine!) The power came back on, but I still didn’t have internet and I could control the kit inside the network. Then on Saturday I had to fly out of town. The internet came back on Saturday night and I’m still out of town, but HomeKit is still being read because remote access isn’t available / Can’t connect to the Home Hub. https://imgur.com/gallery/crXaXcC My AppleTV is the hub and there are a few HomePods on the network that could also act as hubs if needed. But here I am 750 miles away and I would love to do a disco party for BF & cats at home. Do you have any ideas if or how I can get my hubs to start talking to me again remotely? BF at home can restart things if necessary. But since this has essentially happened, I don’t know if it will help. Additional note: I can see my Linksys Velop router from a distance and everything looks great there. Thank you in advance!
