Re: lost wireless ntework connection all of a sudden?!
First of all open up your wireless utility and look at your signal strength. it should be at least -60dbm. Then what i want you to do is to find out what channels people are using around you (most Access points default to 6) if the majority of the people are using 6 switch yours to 1 or 11. Whatever channel is being used the most you change youes from that one. This should get you going again. If you have other issue get your signal strength and we'll see what is going on signal wise.

Ok so for some reason ever since we got a new modem and router my HP laptop willhave a full connection and all of a sudden ill lose it and my wifi says "No Networks available" and a red X appears by my bars at the bottom. ... I dont know if maybe my network adapter is going bad or ...
1) May we know the brand of your laptop so that we can give you exact key combination to reconnect to the wireless connection.
2) If your using windows program try these steps: click on the START button then look for the word CONNECT TO and click it then choose your wireless network name (SSID) for you to be able to connect back to your network.
open your connections and find your connection and reconnect. if that does not work than you could have a problem with your wireless card . but some times all you have to do is turn your server off and unplug it for a minute and it will reset . good luck
Your router probably needs a firmware upgrade to accommodate the throughput from the ISP server. 1. check with your provider to see if you have issue with your cable or DSL line. Sometime if it is a DSL line it is the drop to your house , ( rodent chews in the line; rain or moisture, or dangling and not secured. 2.Cordless phones to close to the router will cause disconnection. 3. A firewall setting in an anti virus software can cause disconnect if not properly configured. 4. channell selection will cause disconnect on some older router such as yours and an new router is the only remedy because the router has come what is called " end- fo -life " and the manufacturer no longer support the router because of new router technology implemented.
