    Cannot not connect to WIFI or ethernet after trying to config network.


    I tired to allow my windows 7 laptop to print over the network, and after 3 hours gave up as nothing seemed to work. I must have done something because now i can not connect to WI FI at all or Ethernet.

    It says on the system tray Not connected and below that connections available, and under wireless network connection it says it is connected to my wireless connection but i can not connect.

    Please any help would be good, i have no Home group with, not sure if this is something i did, it's all a blur to me.

    Any suggestions would be helpful.

    Have you tried plugging in an ethernet cable to your router directly to see if you connect?
    Have you factory reset or power cycled your modem?
    What configs did you change if any? Do you remember?

    On my laptops...if it shows connections available but unable to connect resetting the modem usually fixes it up

    Plugged in ethernet, did not work.

    The modem is working on all other wireless laptops, phones etc in my house, so no need to reset it.

    And no idea what configs i changed. My i have no home group.
