I have a Cisco Linksys E2000 wireless router. Just recently I have been having a weird problem with it.
Its random. I turn on my computer and it doesn't have my router listed as having a signal I can connect to. I use the Dell Wireless WLAN Card Utility to connect and manage my wireless card.
When I go to the area that lets me pick what network I want to connect to my SSID isn't in it. I have 3 other laptops in the house that all receive the signal so I know it is transmitting. If I go to the site monitor area of the Dell Utility I see that my SSID is listed in it and the signal is strong. But there is no way to connect to it in this area.
I go to the area where all my previous connection I have are stored and my SSID is listed but has an X through it indicating it is not available.
By accident I discovered that all I have to do is disconnect the power to my wireless router and then power it back up and then I can connect to it like there wasn't ever a problem.
I guess as long as I can use it there is no major issue. But it is frustrating that my computer is the only one that has this problem.
Any clues as to what might cause my computer to not receive my own signal which always has an excellent signal strength. Also, when I can't receive my signal I can connect to my neighbors router, so I know that they system is still functioning. I'm stumped.
Anybody have any ideas where I might start to look for a problem?
