Wireless router not working all of the sudden

I've confirmed that my laptop's wireless capabilities IS functioning properly (I tested it outside my home at my place of employment) -- however, here at home, it shows signal strength to my router but has limited or no connectivity -- my router has been working fine for a long time up til now -- is the "wireless" part of the router failing (or has failed)? I have "recycled" it several times (i.e., powered it off, then back on -- wait about 10 seconds in between), but to no avail......please advise......thanks

Reset your router, it would enable you to connect
On the back of your router there is a little black reset button. Use a pen or paper clip and press down for 10 seconds. Make sure the lights on the router stop blinking for one second. Release the button and make sure to reset your wireless security and network ID.
If that doesn't work just unplug your routers power cord. This is the easiest way to reset your internet connection without resetting your router to factory settings.
If neither of those work, unplug the power cord of your modem. This will completely reset the internet connection without resetting the routers settings.

How do i unlock my internet so i can acess wireless off it


Are you trying to connect a wireless capable device to a wireless connection?

If Yes of if unsure, to connect a WiFi capable device to a wireless connection you will need the following: a cable modem, a wireless router, Ethernet, a WiFi capable device.

You would connect the wireless router to the modem follow the installation manual instructions for the router to properly setup the router, different brands require different setup procedures.

Once the router is up and running find the SSID (wireless network name you gave the wireless router during setup) for the wireless signal. Click on the SSID in the list of available networks and enter in the passphrase when prompted to.

If all is successful you should connect to a wireless network

Let me know if that helped or if you need additional information or clarification.

I have a cisco WRT160 router and have lost wireless to laptop


Change all the wireless settings of the router.
Change the SSID ( network name ). change the SSID something new that you never tried before. change the security to WPA personal.
change the channel to 6.
make sure the wireless MAC filter is disabled.
under advanced wireless settings change the beacon interval to 75.

Now on your computer try to connect to the new network name.

see if that works.
If that doesn't work then try to upgrade the firmware./

Buffalo G45S router


make sure that there's a wireless card installed in the laptop. if it has, check that it's installed properly on device manager. if it's installed properly check if the wireless capability of the router is enabled. you can access the router's web user interface for you wireless settings. if you have done evrything but your laptop won't still connect, try to isolate the problem by connecting another laptop to your router wirelessly, if another will connect porperly to the router, it means that there's somethign wrong with your laptop or the other way around

hope this'll help you and just ask me if you have other concern

ciao!
