Go into network connections on the laptop and select the Wireless Network. Go into properties and find the TCP/IP settings and ensure that the IP address setting is set to Automatic and the DNS settings also. If you have wireless security set on the router you will have to set that up on the laptop as well.

okay what you do is go to start documents and copy this to the address bar "Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network and Sharing Center" after you do that click on manage wireless networks on the side now click on your internet profile and hit delete after its deleted search and find you internet and set it up again
You need to remove the wireless network from your preferred networks list and reconnect to it.
1. Right click on the wireless icon (picture of a computer) on your system tray. 2. Click on Network and Sharing Center. 3. On the upper left hand side of the page , click on Manage Wireless Networks 4. Right click on you network name and click Remove/delete 5. Now reconnect to your network.
See there are some old settings saved on your computer for the same wireless network name. I believe the operating system on your computer is windows VISTA / 7 . Now you will need to remove the network from the preferred network list. then add the new network on your computer and you will be able to connect to the network. Make sure that you have all the wireless settings of your network. If you are not sure about the wireless settings of your network then you will need to check the wireless settings of the network.
Unplugging the wireless router and connecting it again should not have altered the wireless connection/configuration. You have connected the cables correctly because the Internet works when you connect a LAN cable to the router.
The Linksys wireless configuration or the wireless card configuration in the computer was changed it to lose the wireless connection. The wireless card configuration needs to be changed to match the wireless router's settings or change the Linksys with new configuration settings and configure the wireless card accordingly.

Should you need further assistance, please leave me a comment.
If Automatic Configuration DHCP is enabled on the router your PC wireless or ethernet TCP/IP properties should also be set to "Obtain TCP/IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS server address automatically".
If your security is set to WEP your PC wireless network or ethernet connection properties should also to be set to the same authentication type.
1. it seems that the power outrage had caused your wireless settings to be restored to its factory settings .... so there is a need to reconfigure it again ...
"the settings that are saved to my computer do not match" --- this usually pertains to the network settings saved on your laptop, if it is vista you must delete the old profile,it also applies for xp OS ....
VISTA : >network and sharing center > manage wireless connections >under networks you can view or modify, highlight the old profile then remove
XP : >netowrk connections > right click on wireless network connection and go to properties >click on wireless tab >under preferred networks (box in the middle) highlight then remove 2. to check this do ipconfig on the cmd line •check the default gateway if it is still 192.168.1.1 or 2.1 ( the default gateway is the rtr's address) •open your browser, then type the rtrs ip • leave the username blank, password is admin ( small caps) • then you are in the set up page • check the wireless tab, and very the ssid if it is still or the name of your network which you used to connect to ... • just save the settings if you want to make changes
****** very impt : while doing this changes, your main pc or dsktop pc must be hardwired to the router ,, never make changes wirelessly coz the connection is very instable you will be kicked of everytime ..... ***********
