All was working fine until this morning - when the netbook was turned on it did not auto connect to our wireless connection, but the network list did show the network of the neighbours. I have refreshed the network list a number of times. Until this point I had changed no settings on any of the equipment.
The LAN is still working fine, the wlan light on the router is on, and I have checked the router setup - the diagnostic shows no problems. I have manually set the channel in case that did something, but that had no effect (channel is now set to "auto channel scan" again)
As I can see the neighbours, I assume the problem is the wireless in the router. Time for a new router, or is there something I can do before that? I could press the reset button, but I am not sure that will help, nor that I can remember how to set the network up again (it's winter, I have brain fade...) Is there a real way of checking that the wireless is transmitting receiving, or is the network list my only option? I do not have another wifi enable piece of equipment.
EDIT - I have rebooted all the equipment a number of times, just in case, you know...
Second edit. I had to go out for a couple of hours, so I turned everything off and unplegged it. When I retsarted everything it was like I had never had a problem. Strange
