Help! I had a wireless home network working just fine, through a main desktop PC, second desktop & a laptop, all running Windows XP Home SP2. D-Link modem router. I unplugged the phone line from main PC last night, and can't now get my connection back. When I go into IE explorer I get "unable to find server". In tools > Internet Options > Connections, there is no internet connection appearing. I have tried to setup, but with no success, using New Connection Wizard. I have also done a couple of system restoresw, with no effect. How can I restore my old settings and get connected?
If the phone line you unplugged is the data cable from the phone socket to the broadband D-Link modem-router then reconnecting it won't mean that your ADSL connection is re-established. Hence your error messages.
You need to switch off your router and then back on again for it to negotiate and make a new connection.
