As I am not sure where to put this question, hopefully it will get some attention here.

 

Within the last week my computer seems to have lost the ability to connect to my home network. I was able to print wirelessly, I can no longer do that- additionally, I can no longer access my routers IP to configure the settings. I have tried a number of Windows related troubleshooting tips and nothing has seemed to work. Prior to this the only changes that were made were regular Windows updates.

 

I realize this is a rather vauge question, I will try to narrow down the problem and update what I have. Any help would be welcomed as I have hit a wall on my own.

 

Thank you in advance!

Have you tried updating the wireless driver? What is the make and model of the computer or motherboard if a custom build? Sometime the wireless driver can get wonky and a update will help.

Actually, it is a custom build and I currently have no wireless card in the computer, believe it or not. I am running off of the ethernet ports on the motherboard.

Sorry for the confusion on my part but in your first post you mentioned you were able to print wirelessly. I assumed you had a wireless card. So everything is okay now that you say Ethernet works, correct?

I apologize, that was bad wording on my part perhaps- probably a result of my rage during the day trying to fix the problem. The printer is in fact wired.
