What did you set the router's security settings to? Post a screenshot of the router security setup. Then see if you can get windows to refresh/reconnect somehow.

Quick and easy solution is to do a factory reset, look in your manual for instructions.

You need to enable WPA2 (Or WPA if it doesn't do WPA2) ("encryption") in your wireless router and then use the password you set for it on all your wireless devices. Check the router manual for how to do that.

The "name" of the router is the SSID, again, your manual should tel you how to do that.

How old is this router? I bought a Belkin a couple of weeks ago, the worst tech purchase of my life. Took it back after 10 days of frustration and got a Netgear DGND3700. http://www.ascent.co.nz/productspecification.aspx?ItemID=395771 Killer piece of kit, dual band, gigabit, adsl2+ all in one, great web UI, simple to set up.

Mate think your right needing the upgrade wireless modemn is about 3-4 years, although the modemn its connected too is only a year old?.....could be the laptop too as ive had the acer for around the same amount of time as the wireless....sucks when you cant solve the issue, just going to have to sit on an unsecured network i suppose....lol
