   Alot of times when you have a computer that was just reloaded and hooked back up to the router and it doesnt work, most times the router and cable modem just needs to be reset. Turn off the computer.  Then on the router itself, on the back of the router is a little pinhole. Take a paperclip or a pin and stick it in the hole and press the button inside the hole. After doing so the router lights will start flashing and eventually go back to normal. Do the same for your Cable Modem .Then turn your computer on and then go into network connections to see if your computer is back on the network.                                                                  Hope this helps                                                                    Joe < Data Miner >
 P.S. Added note:  You might want to double check in your network properties That your NWLink/Netbios and  Tcp/Ip  is installed.  Inorder to get there, click on network places,  view network connections,  and then right click on Local Area Connection. Left click on Properties and then see if NetBios is in there....

you must reset the router by 30 seconds and try again. Remember they have a password for wep key for access. do you do it?when you installed the router the software is you want the connection close or open?
However you must click in open network connection , and select network troubleshooter and fix it.
If the problem remain, you must go to router supplier manufacturer via ONLINE chat, and explain the problem.
or reinstall the Router again follow the steps with your disk instalation.

If you are connecting via wireless, the reason is usually because your router has lost its internet connection. Try switching the wireless router off, waiting 10 seconds and switching it on again. Can you explain how you are trying to connect and if you can use any other computer successfully, etc.

XBOX 360 will only work properly with a 'genuine' USB WIFI adapter designed specifically for it (and at an over inflated price IMO!).
One popular way to play 'network' via the internet is to connect the XBOX 360 to your PC via Ethernet cable and have the PC connecting to the internet either via another ethernet connection or more likely via a Wifi connection which could be via your USB adapter connected to your PC and talking to your Wifi Router)

Laptop Cannot Find Home Wireless Network


Try logging into the router with your desktop hard-wired and find the 25-digit passcode and use that to log on to the wireless network with the laptop. If not, then check if connection is good by hard-wiring the router to the laptop. Let me know what happens or if you have solved the problem.

I have to repair my connection to get internet


Are you running a virus scanner or internet security software?

Is it active and has it been updated recently?

Do you perform periodic full scan of your systems and are they clean?

Do you run any apyware packages?

Are they active and have they been updated lately?

Do you perform periodic scans with them and is your system clean?

Not all virus scanners, etc catch all problems. Some catch different items.

Consider using free online services from some of the security vendors to double check your product. Several to consider

Trend Micro

Fsecure (www.fsecure.com and search for online scanner)

Symantec

Consider free spyware software for additional checks if you have not choosen to purchase a product to do this.

Lavasoft

Spybot

Clean up the issues found and see if the problems are eliminated.

Using the following instructions from the zonet website to get your IP address will also reveal your router's address in the default gateway entry (assuming your computer receives it's IP information via DHCP from the router or has been staticslly configured correctly). This will be the value you utilize instead of 192.168.1.1 to access the router's configuration.

spacer.gif Q: How can I find the IP address of my computer? spacer.gif A: Windows 95, 98, and ME:
Click on Start.
Then click on Run.
The Run Dialogue Box will appear. Type "winipcfg" in the window as shown then click OK.
The IP Configuration window will appear, displaying your Ethernet Adapter Information.
Select your adapter from the drop down menu.
If you do not see your adapter in the drop down menu, your adapter is not properly installed.
After selecting your adapter, it will display your IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway.
Click OK to close the IP Configuration window.

Windows 2000 and XP:
Click on Start and select Run.
Type cmd then click OK.
From the Command Prompt, enter ipconfig. It will return your IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway.
Type exit to close the command prompt.

Macintosh 8.x and 9.x:
Click on the Apple Menu>Control Panels>TCP/IP.
Select your Ethernet adapter from the Connect Via drop-down menu.
Under Setup, select Using DHCP Server from the Configure drop-down menu, if connecting to a router DHCP server. This is the most common setting when using a router. In this configuration, your computer will be automatically assigned an IP address by the router.
You must reboot your computer to "renew" your IP address.

Macintosh OS X:
Click on Apple Menu>System Preferences>Network>TCP/IP.

Linux:
At the command line type /sbin/ifconfig and you will get a listing of information. Your IP is shown after inet addr.
