Hey guys, new to the forum, but hey! got a problem:
Alright, a few weeks ago my run-of-the-mill linksys 2.4 ghz wireless router stopped working, both the wireless and wall connections. It couldn't connect to any URLs.
So I figured it got fried from the lightning we had the previous night. I go out, buy the exact same router, same problem. It can't connect to any internet sites.
But, where it gets weird, is that my standard, old, backup non-wireless linksys works perfectly through the wall. Connects easily to the internet.
I have absolutely no explanation for this. The two wireless routers can achieve connections with the computers wirelessly and through the wall, however, can neither get connected to the internet nor the home network.
I'm sure the fifty dollars I spent on the extra wireless was a waste of money. I just want to work outside with my computer again! :'(
