Connected wireless router which worked for about three months
Suddenly 6110 would not connect to the router. Have tried to repair, windows cannot complete repair because it can`t connect to the wireless network. Have tried everything and am at wits end. Please any suggestions?

First, try a reset on the modem and the router. To do that, unplug power from router and modem. Leave both out for about 30 seconds. Then, plug router up first. Wait 30 seconds and then plug in modem. Wait until both are cycled and test your results. See if you can connect. Good luck.

Is the desktop connected via the wired network also? The IP address it's trying to assign in this case comes from the router, if you are plugged into the router with a cable you should be able to reach it through IE at address 192.168.1.0 (maybe 1.1 for linksys). It should come up and ask for an ID and password. The default is something like admin and blank password but you may have reset it. Anyway all that info is in the router manual which can be downloaded. Once in, check the DHCP settings. DHCP sets the IP address and it probably conflicts with something else on the network or a different network. You could just try rebooting everything first, that's always a good choice. For instance, if you have a laptop that's connected, DHCP may have given your IP address to it, when you try to connect from the desktop, it's trying to renew an address instead of getting a new one, because it's lease hasn't expired. It gets confused, just try rebooting everything.
You will need to check the wireless settings of the router is there any computer connected to the router ? If yes then you can open the router set up page on that computer. Router set up page is the page where you can check all the wireless settings of the router.
try to do the ff:
power cycle modem/router
check router security settings
check for wifi barriers
delete previous wireless connections
If your wireless connection is working fine 2 wks ago then you may also try to run system restore
Try letting windows manage your laptop wireless connection. If you are using a third party sw to connect to the internet remove it and ask windows to manage your wireless connection. Also verify that the router power cable is connected directly to the outlet and not an outlet splitter or surge protector. Make sure your built in wireless is working and connected properly and test it than.
you say it suddenly stopped working, if you can connect to the router via ethernet cable then try to access the router's web utility page and make sure your router is in mixed or G-only. If you can't still connect to the router through wireless then try restarting the Wireless Zero Configuration from windows. This is how it's made: Go to control panel and double-click "administrative tools", then double-click "services". You will see a list, scroll down to Wireless Zero Configuration and click "stop", you'll see a progress bar. After that click "start", you'll see another progress bar. Now try connecting to your router via wireless connection. If you still can't connect then repair the connection by right-clicking the wireless icon at the bottom right corner. Keep repairing until you connect.
Hope this works!
