    Sorry about this. I had help from the Belkin group today to reset my router and it was all fine. But no the laptop I used to reset router cannot connect to wireless internet except direct into router ports.

    I am using Win 7 and here is the ipconfig /all result. I also have an XP PC which works using the wifi, so I will also post the result of the XP ipconfig /all result:

    I started your own thread for you here so that we may better try to help you.

    Make sure you have the latest wireless driver from the laptop manufacturer's web site.

    What exactly happens when you attempt to connect?

    Please attach a screen shot of the Networks page (don't collapse the Radar, Connection or Signal History) of the Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector. If you need help with that see TSG Posting a Screenshot. FWIW to take screen shots with Windows 8 or 7 or Vista I prefer to use the built-in Snipping Tool.
