Hello.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1420, running Vista.
Just this morning, I am able to connect to the Internet via a d-link 624 wireless router.
But I gave it WEP protection and set a password for it.
Now my laptop doesn't even detect the network.
It can detect my neighbor's wireless network, just not mine.

My brother's laptop detects it just fine though.

Any help would be awesome.

Laybacker72,

Try removing the wireless profile in Vista, and then try searching again to see if your SSID is broadcasting your wireless. I would also try power cycling both the modem and the router, unplugging power to each device for about 30 seconds. Make sure when you go back to apply power, plug in the modem first and wait for all led lights to come on as normal, and then plug in the router.

Hey equilibrium,

thanks for replying.
It's just some things have happened and the router is out of the equation.
So, I'm no longer using wireless.
I can't try out the things you've mentioned.
But thanks anyways, okay?
