    Our wireless internet was working just fine the last time I was on the computer. I was gone for a few hours, and when I returned I noticed the wireless net was out. (I'm on dial-up backup now). The LAN&USB status light on our wireless modem is not lit up, which is probably what my problem is.

    BTW, our modem is connected to the computer through the ethernet card. When I look at the back of the card where the plug-in jack is, none of the lights are lit up. On the device manager though, it says the card is working fine...

    Try turning everything off. Restart the modem or modem/router combo if that what it is, if not then turn on the router, then the pc's.

    Did your system go into standby or hibernate while you out?

    It was probably in standby since I was gone for a few hours.
