    The thread was closed because the poster did not supply the information needed for a solution.
    Please post the information that etaf requested. None of the information will compormise your privacy. Your Internet IP Address is not shown. I will post my info and try to explain why it is needed.

    ISP - InsightBB (cable)
    Modem - Arris TM602G/113
    Router - Belkin FSD7234-4-BC
    Computer - Dell OptiPlex 170L S/N - FVVSM81
    Wireless Adapter - Belkin Basic N150 P/N - F7D1101
    Identified my ISP, modem, router, computer, and adapter.


    IPCONFIG /ALL - Shows if your adapter is connecting properly to the router. The IP addresses are defaults for a Belkin router connected to an InsightBB modem.. My Internet IP address is not shown. The Ethernet Local Connection has no information because this desktop has never been connected by wire. If I had wireless problems and used an ethernet connection the info would indicate what my wireless IP's should be.

    Screenshot of Device Manager, Network Adapters expanded - Shows the device names and if they are working properly.

    Screenshot of Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector - I have it set to Show All. Shows if the adapter is working and how well. The Network list shows all other visible networks I have mine set for channel 3. Besides the one showing on channel 6, there are two others that sometimes show. one on channel 6 and one on channel 10
