Question about Belkin (F5D7231-4) Wireless Router
Connected to pc fine and my laptop was wirelessly connected for 2 months then my laptop stopped seeing my wireless network. Now laptop will see all other networks in the neighborhood except mine. My router WAN, WLAN, & LAN lights are lit. Can you help?
It does sound like you may need to upgrade firmware. Not sure what router you have but you can download firmware & install from the router's website.
You might like to try:
1. Disable Windows Firewall
2. In Internet Options Control Panel go to the connection tab and then the LAN Settings where you can uncheck the "Automatically detect settings" button.
3. If you have any third party software, I would get rid of this and ensure that the"Windows Zero Configuration" in the Services menu is set to "Automatic" and the status is started.
Interestingly, Anti Virus programs sometimes interfere with wireless set up - you could see if it helps by disabling it whilst configuring your wireless. It might also be worth trying to connect without any encryption code & see if that will connect - you can then sort out the encryption.
