Step 1 - Reset your Winsock and TCP/IP settings:
- Click Start, select Run, type cmd and press OK
- In the new command prompt window, type netsh int ip reset reset.log
- Once the above command completes, type netsh winsock reset catalog
- Restart your computer.
Now, try to connect to your wireless network again, by checking the View Available Networks list; can you see your Network there?
You will need to login to your router's web interface and then press the Wireless link, and then press the Wireless Security link. This is where you should be able to disable encryption, if it is enabled.
2) If you disable encryption on your router, can you connect via wireless from the laptop?
I haven't tried that. How do i disable encryption on the router?
