    Router won't work on wireless? HELP!!!

    Ok so as of last night as a download was going the Internet just stopped connection. Then asked me for the WPA & WPA2 personal password. I didn't know what to put since I had already tried multiple pass words I restarted the router.

    Now for some reason the computer won't pick up the router wireless signal. It picks up multiple connection's around my area so I know that it's not the wireless card. The router is connected via ethernet at the moment so I know the internet works.


    Do I have to find the ssid? Maybe the router reconfigured it's self when I restart it and broadcasting mode turned off... I just don't know.

    If so how do I change the router settings? Thanks much appreciation for any help.

    Have you tried logging into your router? Usually it's something along the lines of http://192.168.1.1 Try admin for username and password. You'll need to click on the wireless settings to reconfigure.
