Hi all,

Using the afore mentioned router i have had wireless network and internet
access throughout my house with no problems for the last year or so.

Today for some reason I lost all internet access from both machines, this
resulted in my having to re-enter all details into the router again from my
desktop. As if it had been reset?

Having gone through all that - I now have access again from my desktop. For
some reason I can not get my laptop to pick the connection up whatsoever.
It can not seem to find a wireless signal. Does anyone know of any software
or anything I can do to test the wireless receiver built into my laptop?
Device manager informs me that its running ok although I don't know - it
could actually be the router any ideas ?

Thanks in advance.

Make sure you don't have wireless turned off (my laptop is Function F2), or
disabled in the control panel.... (device manager shows it working okay,
but turned off to programs)

as for the temp loss, i had a problem last year/spring when the power kept
glitching and screwing up my wap/router, would reset with an unplug/replug,
finally just put an elcheapo lamp timer on it to turn off/on a few times a
day...

In your router set-up you may have the wireless turned off or you may have
enabled the "hide network" function.

Cheers Guys,

Did FN+F2 (had a picture of a transmitter looking thing on it!) Then
selected repair connection.
