I have a Dell Laptop that will connect to any public or other home wirless network but will no longer connect to my own house(network). It recognizes my Network name, I can connect to the internet if I plug in the cable. But wireless says no connection. I have did the troubleshoot which suggests I restart my router(Netgear). I have done this many times. I have retarted the modem and router. doing this sometimes gives me internet for a few minutes on the wireless network. I have done a ping (I think thats what the cmd and further instructions from Dell support was). I have changed my firewall and McAfee options. The ping shows "media disconnected". Not sure if that helps the problem. I have read many threads and tried everything I can think of. Our desktop is wired and internet works fine, just this sudden(5month issue) with my laptop. I checked our IP address to make sure there isnt a conflict or that we have the same address. Please help! I would love to use my laptop around the house instead of being stuck to the desk for the hard wire.
