Usualy small home routers are managed using a web interface, so there is not need for a special software. I say "usualy" because you did not specify the brand and model of your router, so I am assuming that you router behaves like the others.

First, you will need to find the IP address of your router. In order to do that, in Windows XP, click Start > Run and type "cmd". On the command line, type "ipconfig". Look at the "Default gateway" line, this should be the IP address for your router.

Then open a web browser such as Internet Explorer and type that IP address in the address bar. The web interface should open. It may ask you for a username and password. The username is usualy "admin" but the default password may differ from one manufacturer to another. Try leaving the password field empty. If it does not work try "admin" also as the password.
If it still does not work, having the brand and model of your router will be necessary to find the default password.

Everything should be explained in more details in the user manual of your router, if you still have it. It you don't, it may usualy be downloaded from the manufacturer support web site.

Hi I ca you help i cant remember my WEP key

No, there's only 3 ways to sort this problem out.

1. Someone else who knows it tells you.

2. Use a pc/laptop with cracking software like aircrack, but last time I heard it was linux only, would be legal if you own the network (I assume, don't know worldwide laws), but it could takes weeks (longer for WPA, which is what you should be using as WEP isn't very secure) and is very complicated I think.

3. Reset the router. You'll need a pencil or similar.

If there isn't anyone else who knows your key then reset the router, by holding the reset button (small recessed rubber button usually on the back) for 30 secs (could be less) and setup your router again.

From your explanation what i got is the router is not working and needs to be rebooted to start working. There is no changes done into the configuration.

In this case i suspect some software bug in the router.
I will recomend to backup your configuration and then reset once the router.
Remember if you reset the router the router will go to factory default settings and will loose all the configuration. you need to reconfigure that from the configuration backup you have taken recently.

We purchased a D-Links Air Plus Xtreme G Wireless Router years ago. It worked fine up until 2 years ago when my husband disconnected something. I'm not sure what he did, but would like to set it up again....

You can download the manual for your router and follow instructions from there.
You will need to browse to the dlink website - - and from there navigate to the "find your product" link. From there you can find all the details for your specific modem.

My personal network which i set up about 6 months ago when i purchased this router, will no longer allow me access to the internet. I can however gain access when i switch to other available networks

Connect to the web-interface of the router, and click "reset to factory settings". Then, run the "Wireless Network Setup Wizard" to recreate your personal wireless network.

I cannot connect a new lap top to our wireless router

There's no special settings actually in adding another notebook to your wireless network. You can add up to 32 wireless clients on your wireless network. You will see a wireless network icon at the system tray by the clock, just click that and you will see the list of available networks. Choose your network and click connect. That should do it.
