    I'm not sure if this helps, but the model is: whr-hp-g54

    I was cut off from the internet a few days ago and got it back this morning. When i turned the laptop on, it asked me to log in to wireless. I disconnected and re-tried and it hasn't asked me to log in since. It tells me that it's connected to the internet however it never loads. When i tried wireless on my iPod, it said it was connected fully (three bars) to the router however when i tried loading the internet it loads for a long time then ultimately tells me that the server has stopped responding.

    If i connect the laptop directly to the modem instead of through the router, it works fine, which means that the issue is the router itself.

    any help would be much appreciated, thanks. joel.

    it may be worth doing a power cycle -
    if that does not help - resetting the router back to factory settings and reconfigure
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    How to power cycle

    “power cycle” process to reboot or reset the modem/router
    • Switch off all the devices modem, router and computers also unplug their power cables.
    • Wait at least 1 to 5 minutes,
    • Plug the power cords back in, but don’t switch them on.
    • First turn on the modem and then wait for a few minutes for it to settle and all the lights to become stable.
    • Next switch on the router (if a seperate device) and then wait for a few minutes for it to settle and all the lights to become stable.
    • Now turn on your computer, You should now be able to access the Internet.
