“Tell me how what and where I find and put the codes to get me back on”

You need to access the router go to the wireless section in the security section the wireless

password /code will be listed

You should always save the wireless access code in a safe place like a flash drive or a make a

folder on your back up hard drive so that in 1 year time when you get a new PC you won’t be

asking stupid question on how to find your wireless access code

Thanks for that tullie, comments like the last one from AMBRA does not help. It only causes anger OK. There is no such thing as a stupid question, if you go on a forum seeking help with a problem then the question is presented, if you are not going to be a nice person AMBRA, then please do not answer.

My ISP is AOL. I have previously had a connection on the laptop. The wireless facility has stopped working, my AOL connection on my main comp is fine, the router on this comp is NETGEAR ADSL Modem Router. Hope this helps someone provide an helpful response. Cheers

Couldn.t connect on wifes laptop yesterday.
Right clicked on network then diagnose and repaired. That sorted it.
Might be worth a try.

Enter click here into your web browser and just check in the wireless/wireless settings section that 'Enable Wireless Access Point' is not unticked. If it is then tick the box click on apply.

Could you go into device manager, and right click on your wireless card, just to make sure it has not been inadvertently disabled.
