I have had to restore my Harddrive on my DELL Vostro 1500 laptop pc. Upon doing so, I have somehow lost my wireless network connection and can't seem to get it back up and running. I've tried just about everything imaginable and stated by Microsoft Tech, Dell Tec, and my ISP Tech. When I run the diagnostic test from within the Network adapter utility, it skips all the IP Ping options and the Authentification results in Failed. It says I'm connected to wireless network, Unsecured, however I cannot seem to access the web or my email. I've even run the network diagnostic. Any help from anyone would be greatly appreciated. GOD BLESS

Are you connected to the correct wireless network and not to a wireless network of your neighbors?

Yes I am positive. There are two others that do show up on my list, but they don't have any signal and I only use mine anyway.

Chances are the simplest solution will be to reset your router to factory defaults and setup a new wireless LAN. Use a new SSID and password.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.

You have to read the routers manual.
Some routers do have enabled wireless encryption by default.
The encryption key can then be found at the bottom side of the router.
The defautl SSID should also be found there or in the routers manual.

Thanks for the info. My router didn't come with a manual. But the SSID is listed on the side, I used all the info as it stated on router, etc. and still nothing. Looks like I"m going to have to call my provider and pay them to set it up for me. Thanks all for all your input, help. GOD BLESS

The routers manual can mostly be downloaded from the internet.
Go to the manufacturers website and search for the router model, you have.
