    Think it is an Adsl Gateway.
    Any other wireless devices affected ?
    May we see this ,please.
    Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt:
    (For Vista or 7 type CMD in the Search box after Start)



    In the command prompt window that opens, type the following command:

    Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

    IPCONFIG /ALL

    Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter to copy the contents to the clipboard.
    Paste the results in a message here.

    If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

    And this:
    Wifi test exe. Hint from Johnwill

    Download and run Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspecto from
    www.xirrus.com/library/wifitools.php
    on the problem machine. Post a screen shot of the main screen here.



    To post a screen shot of the active window, hold the Alt key and press the PrtScn key. Open the Windows PAINT application and Paste the screen shot. You can then use PAINT to trim to suit, and save it as a JPG format file. To upload it to the forum, open the full reply window and use the Manage Attachments button
    to upload it here.

    Note that this application requires NET Framework to run. If you get an error about a missing function, download and install NET Framework.

    As pedroguy indicated the WBR-T2 appears to be an ADSL modem/router combo. So, that would mean you have ADSL service, Correct? DariusSupport wasn't asking how your computer is connecting to the router.

    Did you just reset (restart) the router or did you reset it to factory default settings? Either way have you checked to see that the WAN is properly configured? And checked to see if it has made a connection to your ISP?

    If you reset your router to it's default settings, you must reconfigure everything in order to synchronize the setting of your network connection.
