Wireless not connecting

My wireless which was working fine now won't connect to any of the wireless networks it used to even though they seem to be working - I just get a red cross on the icon and a message saying connection not available. If I try to reconnect and tick the box to allow connection to non secure network it doesn't seem to do anything or make a difference. I know this is a vague description but thought it might be an obvious thing. The only change I've made recently was to upgrade Adobe... Any ideas?

Ok if you go to your network connections and right click on the wireless network card and go to properties, then click onto wireless networks. make sure the check mark is in use windows to configure my wireless networks. If that doesn't work then go to start, control panel, administrative tools then to services. Scroll down until you see the wireless zero and make sure that is set to automatic and make sure it's started. then it should work. i hope this is helpful to you. let me know

Adapter inactive

It is not the problem with the router. It is the problem with the wireless adapter on your computer. Open Network connections and look for Wireless network connection. If it is not there then open the Device Manager and look for Wireless network adapter under Network adapters. It seems that wireless adapter on your computer is not working or it is not detected by your computer. If you have external wireless adapter then unplug it and replug it.

This is worked for me on Vista:
1. Goto Network and Sharing Center.
2. Click on your Wireless Connection "View Status".
3. Click on Propertes.
4. Uncheck the option that says "Internet Protocol Version 6"

Can't get online, even though computer says connected

As the router is working and connected to the internet - then its probably and issue with the wireless setup on router or your PC

1) remove any wireless profiles on your PC read here - how to do that then when reconnect it will ask for the key again 2) A firewall maybe blocking your access - disable any firewalls 3) Remove the wireless security if enabled in the router and see if you can connect - if this is the only wireless device connecting - it may interference try also changing the wireless channel in the router - use 1 or 6 or 11

I have a Dell XPS 1330 laptop and a DI-524 wireless router.

Unsure what your problem is exactly but here is something to try. Power off all computers, modem and router. Power up the modem first, and wait until it is completely up before proceeding. Next power up the router and wait until it is completely up, the only light that probably wont be lit is the LAN light. Then power up each computer, they can all be powered on at the same time, that part really doesnt matter. See if that fixes the problem.

Router won't connect to the internet

I managed to figure it out. I had to clone the MAC address to get the router to connect to the Internet.

I still have another problem though, my laptop still won't connect to the router. I'm using Vista, is this a possible network adapter issue? My laptop is fine at connecting to other wireless networks round my friend's houses/libraries...
