    For some reason I now cannot connect to the wireless network in my house, everyone else can but me, however I can acess the internet by using a cable. I did a network diagnostic and it came up with a failed message by the IP address (request timed out), I also did an ipconfig and it said that the media was disconnected. Also I cannot change my home page from msn (not sure if that is related).

    Any ideas on how to fix this would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

    First, some information.

    Please supply the following info, exact make and models of the equipment please.

    Make/model of the broadband modem.
    Make/model of the router.
    If wireless, encryption used, (WEP, WPA, WPA2, etc.)
    Make/model of network card or wireless adapter.
    Make/model of your computer (motherboard if home-built).
    Version and patch level of Windows on all affected machines, i.e. XP-Home (or XP-Pro), SP2, Vista, etc.

    Also, please give an exact description of your problem symptoms, including the exact text of any error messages.


    Have you tried disabling encryption on the link to see if that's the issue?
