Hi, Hope some one can help me with this before I pull my hair out !!
My PC is running Windows XP Pro SP2 connected to it via my LAN is a PTI PAE-CE84 router/DSL modem (with 4 LAN ports). Connected to that is my PC as 10.0.0.4, the router being 10.0.0.2, also connected is my sons PS2 as 10.0.0.7, both show up in the routers table and have not issues at all.
The third device connected is a Belkin (802.11b) Wireless Access Point. This has been working without a problem for some 9 months and is used to connected to my Dell X5 (check drivers and are working).
A week or so ago I lost the wireless link, I checked the drivers on my PDA but was unable to locate an active network.
My Router no longer had my wireless Belkin box listed, but the LAN link light is still on. On the Belkin wireless point the green (showing a hardwire LAN connection) and red (power on) are on. Normally the third orange light (data transfer) flickers on and off, but is off. The Beklin802.11b Wireless Access point Manager software also fails to connect to the wireless point, although in attempting the green lights flicker on the access point and router/modem .
I've reset the router (6 times) and re-entered my ISP settings, (confirmed with my brother who also has same router/modem ISP and wireless point). I have also used his wireless point which I know works with zero results). Both wireless points have been reset with no result. I've rolled my PC back regards update to early Feb with no change (in an attempt to allow the management software access). But I'm kinda ruling the PC out as a trouble maker unless told otherwise because Internet access should be able with the PC off.
If some one could give be some advice as to what I can do next, yes I'm aware a new wireless router/DSL g modem is only some £60, but I want to be sure where the problem lies before I throw good money after bad.
Thanks for your assistance
