    I have a USB Netgear WN111v2 that has been working perfectly up until now, it can't connect to the network and trying to manually set up the addresses, reinstalling drivers, and trying a system restore haven't worked. Even though the router has a lease for the computer on 192.168.1.11 it's doesn't work, although it will show that it's connecting, it won't ping anything, including the router... WZC utility is stopped :|

    Any advice would help

    Disable encryption on the router and try to connect. If successful you can probably re-enable encryption and reconnect.

    Had tried messing with the router before - removing security and factory resetting to no avail. Managed to get it to work though by using WZC utility and manually entering address info.
