Hi,

I have a PC running Windows Vista and have been using a wireless router for about 2 years and no problem, last week the PC would not pick up the wireless connection from the router, but if I hardwire connect to it using ethernet cable I have no problem, the 3 Smart phones in the house are picking up the wireless connection from the router so it looks like the PC has a problem. I went into control panel, networking and sharing, diagnose and repair, but it did not solve the problem.

Any ideas or suggestions what might fix it

Thanks,
John

Have you tried reinstalling wireless card driver or resetting TCP/IP and winsock?
