Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54GS Router (e125894)
If the laptop was connecting wirelessly before and you didn't change the wireless security key on the router during your troubleshooting steps with the ISP then it should just reconnect. If it doesn't reconnect you should probably delete the wireless profile that's saved and try connecting again. When you delete the wireless profile you will have to enter the security key again. Make sure you have this information handy.
If you are uncertain what the wireless security key is use your desktop that is physically connected to the router to log into the router and reset the security key.
To log onto the router you need to know the routers IP Address. You can obtain that information through the following:
Look for the default gateway. The default gateway is the IP Address of the router. By default the IP is 192.168.1.1.
Type whatever IP Address you discovered into the address bar of your web browser (Internet Explorer for most) and hit enter.
You will be prompted for a login. If you didn't change the default login information to the router it should be a blank username and the word: admin - as the password.
Navigate to the wireless settings and reset the security key.
From your laptop key in the new network key.
Hope this helps.
