my laptop has stopped reconising my wireless connection.i have a echolife hg520s. it picks up my neighbours wireless connections ok so its not the wireless adapter i dont think. the router works fine with my other wireless laptop. the only way i can connect this laptop is by using my ethernet cable. I am at a loss what to do can someone help me please thanks
i tried this but it justs directs me to the other wireless connections. ive just realised i am connected by the ethernet cable so i am going to disconnect this and try again to start a new connection. i will find my other pc and come back online with that while i try to connect with this thanks for your help so far.
when i try to set up a new connection it gets to the box showing the other wireless connections that it is picking up execpt mine. i cant get passed this boxi cant understand why it is not seeing talktalk I am online now wirelessly to you through my other pc so the router is working ok if i find my old disk that i got when i joined talktalk would going through that again helpme
If you reinstall using the disk it will chasnge the wireless name and security key for the router. In itslef this is not a problem because the installation process will place a document on your desktop named "talktalk settings" - this gives the name and security key which you can then use to connect your other laptop
The next thing you can try (assuming you can right click that connection and see the properties) is to go into the properties and write down all the parameters shown for both tabs (connection and security).
You can then remove the original wireless connection and then select add using all the parameters exactly as you have written them down.
i think i will leave that untill tomorrow I am tired now and think i need to be wide awake to try this maybe tomorrow i will switch it on and it will work i,m not holding out much hope though ! tbank you very much for your help barney I wish i knew as much as you do about these things. pcs are great untill things go wrong its great that people are willing to help each other thanks again. hope have good news tomorrow thanks again
