I have XP with a DLInk wireless router on my desktop. Suddenly, my laptop (which operates on 2000) won't log on. I have notes to myself that say I should Depower the router, then the modem, then repower the modem, then repower the router and turn on the PC. Is this the correct order? Thanks very much.

Doesn't sound like anything wrong with that order. When you say "logon", what exactly are you trying to log on to? Is it your local network? Are you getting an IP address? Is it actually giving you a log on window? More info please.

I'm just trying to log on to my ISP. I do get a log on window, but it says the network is not available. Thanks for the help.

Well, if you know the domain name of the network, you should try entering in the information like this: domain\username then enter your password. It would be the short form of your domain more than likely. Say if your domain was msn.com, more than likely you would just use: MSN\username
