Hi,

I have been trying to follow instructions on how to fix this issue but I am terrible with computers. We had a wireless glitch (wasn't working for a few hours) so I restarted the router and now the wireless works on one computer but not the other. The wireless shows up on my computer but it won't connect for some reason. Here is that thing that everyone keeps telling people to do:

Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]

Any help would be appreciated. THANK YOU!

I see this from time to time at work. First have you tired to reset all the settings and reinstall the router software, or the CD that came with the router. Checking your TCP/IP setting Start>Control Panel>Network Connection>Right Click>Properties>Click Internet Protocol TCP/IP (the words not the box)>Properties and both options should be dotted to obtain automatically. Try reinstalling the drivers for the wireless NIC you have. I would try those things first then come back with the results.
