We have a NetGear RangeMax Wireless Router attached to a Comcast cable modem at one end and our desktop PC at the other. We have set up a secured network using the router.
My wife and I use our respective laptops to connect wirelessly to the Internet using this router. This has been working for several months now.
Since yesterday, for no apparent reason, my laptop is unable to access the Internet using the router. Our router shows up in the list of available networks and my laptop has an 'Excellent' connection with it. However, when I open up my browser it does not connect to the Internet.
My wife's laptop works fine and does not have this problem.
Besides other secured networks, my laptop is able to see a couple of unsecured networks in the apartment complex where I live. If I connect to them, my browser works fine and can access the Internet.
Any suggestions on what may be going on here ?
One thought I had was to somehow delete all knowledge about our network from my laptop, and then let it find the network again and for me to re- enter the password etc. to set it up afresh. However, I do not know how to delete this info from my laptop. Any suggestions on how to do this ?
