    My DSL modem/wireless router wont broadcast the wifi signal i need to know if it is just defective or a setting that can be turned off, It was working just fine and just recently stopped broadcasting, it works just fine for a direct connection. (It is a regular windstream wireless modem/router.

    you can enable/disable wireless in most router , from the configuration pages

    log into the router and see if enabled

    also there is often a light on the front panel showing if WLAN is on/off

    whats the make and exact model of the router

    You can probably access the web interface of the DSL modem by typing http://192.168.1.254 in your web browser. Hopefully your ISP doesn't have it password protected.
