Cannot Find Server. Netgear wireless laptop.

  Drumz 10:51 04 Aug 2008

My laptop has already successfully been connected to the net using Netgear DG834G router and WG111 v2 adapter.
Suddenly, although I'm still connected and try and access the web, I get "Cannot Find Server" message.
I've tried everything I can possibly think of including re-installing the adapter and re-booting the router but no luck. Any advice would be welcome. Thanks in advance.

You need to check that
1 The wireless is working on the router (can another wireless device connect to it)
2 The wireless card in the laptop is working (does it work in another laptop)

What OS is it and what Firewall have you? Is the adapter one of the permitted exceptions in the firewall.

Are you using the adapters software to connect? If so try uninstalling it and using the built in Windows one.

Do you use Zone Alarm and have you installed KB951748 (SP 3)?
