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)?

Well the Tab only has Wifi so yep I'm sure its going through router, and I had data roaming turned off on the Galaxy S.. and wifi enabled. Phone through VOIP box is working
