    There are two different laptops currently feeding off the same wireless router. On the laptop that has administrative abilities, someone attempted to set up a password - changing the security type from 'No Authentication' to 'WPA2 - Personal' and entering a different password than the one that already in use. Despite the security settings being 'No Authentication', there was a password in place that was required to be used when connecting the the network. The administrative computer was disconnected from the internet and cannot reconnect. The other computer is connected and has had no problems. The internet service provider was called and could not help, and believed that it was a computer problem rather than an internet problem.
    The computer is a Lenovo, but the owner is unsure of the type. Definitely not a ThinkPad, however.

    If anyone could help, we'd be very grateful.
    Thanks in advance!

    CJ.

    I don't completely understand what you are saying, but it's certainly not an ISP problem.

    If the someone was trying to reconfigure the router then obviously he/she failed, but I have no clue what else was done to the computer to block internet access.

    If the someone changed the wireless profile on the computer then the obvious fixes are to undo the changes or delete the profile, scan for networks and give the correct information when connecting.
