I have a wireless router (ZyXEL nbg334w), a Belkin 802.11g network adaptor (internal wireless card), and an internal modem. I am sharing a LAN home network with a house mate (he has a laptop and no connectivity problems)
During the setting up of my router I have encountered problems, where now the wireless adaptor and LAN informs me that I am disconnected (i used my computer to set the network up)! I have tried to repair with windows but it replies 'problem cannot connect'. I have checked to see that the wireless card and LAN are on 'DNS and IP address automatic' and they are. When I ping the adaptor and command prompt (Ipcofig/ release and ipconfig/renew) all I get is LAN and adaptor disconnected.
When I set up the router I employed the set-up disc and went through wizard set-up. I named my SSID and enabled WPA-PSK security and received an encryption self-generating key to do so. I have even turned off my computer's firewall (Zonealarm) and checked to see that it is not blocking access to the internet - which itl seems it is not.
I had no problems with wireless connectivity prior to configuring the router, but was worried about people 'piggy backing' onto my wireless conncetion, so configured the security on the router.
HELP! I am at my wits end
