I was able to connect before on my router. Then I accidentally made it an access point, so I did a hard reset on the router. I managed to get the router back on the network. I have a ethernet cable running from the router to my computer and I am able to be on the internet through local area connection. For some reason, my computer absolutely will not connect to the router via WiFi.

 

This is what it says if I do command prompt and put in ipconfig

I also have to add that no other device is able to connect to the wifi. On my Nook, it says the password is incorrect. But there is no password on there right now because I hard reset the router to get it to work again.

Do your devices detect the SSID?

 

Anywho,,, you may have to go into the router and set up the WAP again, ie. name the access point, setup the password, and make sure you are broadcasting the SSID.

 

Now try to detect the SSID, if you detect it then login with the new password.

Did you recreate a new wifi SSID and password? Try clearing your previous home network SSID then manually enter again your new password. Go to Network and Sharing - Manage Wireless Networks - Right-click the previous wifi home SSID then delete.

 

Go to command prompt or cmd then type ipconfig /release then ipconfig /renew (press Enter on each command). Reboot computer then locate your wireless SSID then enter the correct password.
