Alrighty, then. Hello everyone, first time posting, but I've browsed here many times trying to solve various unrelated problems.

On my laptop, which is an Fujitsu Lifebook, A series, I can connect to most networks. However, the network that I really need to connect to is my home network. The security settings are all correct, however I usually end up getting limited connectivity. However, this doesn't let me connect to even the router settings.

All my device drivers are up to date. And it is really bizarre, because I can connect to any other network except for this one. It connected just fine until I had to do a reformat due to a hard-drive crash.

Please help, or let me know what other information would be relevant.

Hello :welcome: to BC!!

Do you have any thing else connected to the wifi router? Also have you tried powering the router off and on again to see if that helps? Also If you could supply us with your wifi routers manufacturer and model. :)

The router is a rangemax wireless-n 150 from netgear. There are two other computers connected on the wifi network, and both are working normally. The laptop can connect to any other network it tries to get on. I have powered the router off for 5 minutes, then turned it back on. Still doesn't work.

Thank you for the welcome.
