ok so i have my desktop and my laptop connected to my wireless router which is right underneath my desktop. I was connected to my DI-524 D-Link router at 192.168.0.1 and i was setting up at WEP key, when i did that, the router reset - but then i was unable to connect to my router again. My laptop can, but my desktop is only sending and not receiving. I called my ISP and D-Link with no help. I tried unplugging everything - nothing. I ran a Hijack this scan because somebody said that a virus could be blocking it. If needed i can send the logfile. Right now i connected my modem right to my computer via USB. I do not have an ethernet slot on my desktop, which i realize could fix the problem in two seconds. Since this fiasco occured i have not been able to connect to my router via the address on my desktop.

I have spend two days trying to figure out how to fix this. please if anyone can help me, it would be apprciated. =]

Sounds like your were connected via wireless when you set the WEP key. Try resetting the router to its defaults. Then set the WEP key when connected by a Cat 5 cable. Make sure you copy the WEP key to file on one of your computers. How does the desktop connect to the router? Did you set up the WEP key on the Desktop?

My wireless connection to my desktop was fine until it reset itself. I already tried resetting the router back to default- nothing. I dont have a Cat 5 cable? and yeh i set up the WEP key on my desktop. but i was able to connect to it with my laptop.

Can you access the router from your Laptop? If you can turn off the WEP encryption so you can get the desktop working. DO NOT SET THE WEP KEY WHILE CONNECTED BY WIRELESS. Get a cable for your Laptop.

What kind of network hardware do you have installed on the desktop? If you run IPCONFIG /All from a command prompt, what does it report?
