Hi, assuming you are running WinXP, you might want to try: 1) right click on your wireless networking icon and click repair; or 2) double click on the same icon; click on properties, scroll down to/click TCP/IP to highlight, click on properties - Tick Obtain an IP address automatically if your access point is also acting as DHCP server; or 3) get IP add + others from your Network Admin and entered numbers given; or 4) self-assign IP numbers that are pretty near your Access Point (AP) IP #s, maybe something like 192.168.1.3 where your AP is 192.168.1.1, subnet mask should be the same as your AP (normally 255.255.255.0 but may be different) and your default gateway normally would be the IP Add of your AP (192.168.1.1 or whatever the AP is using) DNS could be obtained from your ISP or tick obtain automatically. Caution here that the IP number you select should not be currently in use in your network. 5) Open IE, go to tools/internet option/connection, remove any dial-up if no longer needed and check never dial a connection (assuming you don’t use a modem and would connect normally via wireless. Go to/Click LAN settings, check auto detect settings, make sure Proxy server is uncheck. 6) Ping any website from your command prompt to see if you get a response If all else fail, pls post your AP hardware (brand/model), OS. It might also be a good idea to check if your AP is connected to an ISP with an active account and that your modem is working ok. Please let me know if this works out ok for you. Cheers.

The first thing you should try is connecting one machine via a cable to the router, to see if the connection is stable. This will prove the router is working, or not, as the case may be. Assuming the router still fails to function properly, you can then replace it.
However this assumes that the modem and internet connection are working properly. If either is causing the problems, then the router might be just fine.
But if the router does appear to work fine when wired in, then it at least proves everything outside the router is fine. And while it is possible, it is rather unlikely that just the wireless part of the router failed without killing the switch/router part.
So try this, and once we have the result, we can take the next step

an Access point is to add Wireless to a LAN. (which is ok if you have a Router connected to your LAN).
if you have no Router, and only have an ADSL/Cable modem connected to a PC then you should have got a Router +ADSL/Cable modem instead of an Access point. you can get routers like this which also have wireless, so you get all the functionality in 1 box
Here is a Wireless router, with hub and ADSL +Cable Support
