    Hello everyone, i hope some one can help me :). I have only a desktop computer which is connected through Ethernet cable, and the Nintendo Wii which connects wireless.

    The router is EchoLife HG520b.

    I reset my router to factory default because i had some problems with the connection. The connections fine by erthernet no problems. In the router i noticed it disabled the wireless access point ..when i try to enable this ( to use the wireless for the WII) it disconnects the erthernet connection to the desktop computer and the internet light on the router turns off and the ADSL light flashes on and off?

    Also if i enable the wireless ( this then disconnects the Ethernet to the computer ) it picks the connection up but it doesn't work, no connection or anything.

    so i carnt use wireless at all.

    I have tryed resetting the router ( the little pin hole at the side) didnt work.
    power off all cables etc didn't work
    disable my anti virus ( AVAST) didn't work.

    hope someone can help thank you (y)

    Im on windows XP
