Windows 7: WIFI stop working - d-link DI 614+

WIFI stop working - d-link DI 614+

Hey guys, got a macbook pro(running Windows 7 bootcamp) and a pc desktop at home, and both wifi stop working yesterday, not sure whats going on, My iphone & powerbook can pick up my Wifi network just fine.
I have a cable modem box hooked up to a Dlink DI 614+. Im in my Dlink router config page, everything is still the same, wireless still enabled, password is still set. in the system tray, the wireless connection box doesn't show any wireless network, not even my neighbors. I tried manually adding the Wifi network in the Wireless connection network menu, but it doesn't seem to do anything. A few days ago i did try to network share my macbook pro with my desktop(which i did get working) not sure if that might have caused the wireless failure. But it is odd that the pc and macbook pro now stop working, but the powerbook is fine.


any suggestions ?

thanks.

In general these types of problems can be fixed by resetting the router. After resetting the router you will need to go through the routers set up page and enter your SSID, password, and other wireless connection settings.

I was just going by what you said about the router WIFI stop working - d-link DI 614+

I hope the restore works, if not post a screen shot of your ipconfig /all and we can go from there.
