Lost connectivity after 3 months?

Specs: Vista SP1, 3.0Ghz,2Ghz
The monitor on one of my computers died around three months ago. I would wirelessly connect to the internet with this particular computer. Since I am still deciding on a monitor I decided to hook up my television to the computer so I could print out some files. When I went to go on the Internet I found that I had not connected. The icons in the systray are hard to make out because the resolution is so poor on a portable 4:3 television. Anyway, is this happening because the computer had not connected wirelessly in almost three months? Do I need to release and renew the IP address? Where does one do this in Windows XP? Or is it because the computer senses a poor graphics monitor is connected by RCA cable and therefore won't even allow internet access? Thanks.

Sorry but I have to LOL.

The monitor has nothing to do with your internet access. For us to trouble shoot the problem you need to go to your Command Prompt and run the following command...

IPCONFIG /ALL > MYCONFIG.TXT

Then go to your My Documents and open the newly created MYCONFIG.TXT copy what is there and post it in the forum.

I wanted to check the specs on the router but I seem to have forgotten the userid and password or at least I forgot what I changed it to. I have a Trendnet router. I was just going to go in and look at the MAC filtering specs. This PC is supposed to have access alnog with a laptop. Do you know how to reset userid and password?

You'll never guess what it turned out to be! A couple days ago I was having trouble with my DSL connection...the internet light on the modem was not lit. The so-called knowledgeable technician told me to unplug my router and plug it back in. Well, there goes your settings! I realized this when I couldn't log in to the router and when I tried to connect my laptop to the network I noticed my SSID had reverted back to factory default. I changed everything back now. Beware of phone support who don't have a clue what they're doing! Most times my connection problems are on the ISP end, not my end! I should have learned that by now and just be patient and don't call support. Well, anyway, I should be OK now!
