1. Assuming you're using safe wireless practices and using a WPA password to connect to the wireless network, try removing the network from the wireless network properties, then reconnect, typing the CORRECT password again.
2. Change the wireless channel on the router (Channel 6 is the default, try changing it to 1 or 11 and see if it helps.), making sure that you have the SSID (Public wireless network name) displaying correctly. (Don't hide it.)
3. Check the Linksys website for any updated firmware for the router and if found, download it and install it.
4. Make sure you're using 64 bit drivers for any wireless cards you have installed on the computer.
Hope this helps.
Hi all, here's the long and short of it.
Was playing a quick bout of DC Universe Online this morning with Firefox open in the background. Logged out of the game and found that I had lost my internet connection. My family network was there (newish Linksys router) though it said I wasn't connected to the internet. My Macbook, however, stayed connected just fine.
I rebooted to see if that would help, but that only managed to make my network disappear entirely. It seems that my computer no longer sees my wireless adapter at all. Plugged in a new wireless card, installed driver and software, rebooted as per instructions... still nothing, and Windows 7 keeps saying that there's a network cable unplugged.
Not sure what to do here, as I'm not nearly as proficient with Windows 7 as I am with XP. I figure that it must be a system setting, as a replacement card didn't resolve the problem. Any ideas/help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks again!
