I was using my computer this morning when the wireless signal dropped out.  The computer is running Vista. I rebooted the router which is a Belkin Wireless N connected to a Linksys VOIP box. Once rebooted the computer will only connect locally, no internet at all. Same issue on my Linux Mint laptop.  My Acer Iconia tablet and Galaxy S work fine via Wireless.   Any ideas what is going on? Thanks

Are you sure your Tab and Galaxy are going through wireless and not 3G?
Doesn't make sense that 2 PCs wont get net through the same router that gives your Tab and Phone Internet otherwise.

What lights are on on your Belkin? Do your phones work (VoIP ones)?
