swmbo complains, the laptop want go online.
I check with my cell & sure enough, no wifi.
Check the trusty old Dynalink RTA 1025W.
All green, strange, reboot it. Same.
Well maybe it's had it's day.
Just happen to have another identical one all setup ready to go.
But it's exactly the same, no wifi, just the wired working.
What are the chances of both dying at the same time.
I zero'd one of them & set it up again, no change.
The diagnostic test says the wireless passed.
Where do we go from here?

Any severe interference on the channel you're using?

Not sure about interference.
Nothing different from normal.

It wasn't set on auto, but when I tryed another channel it came back on.

Wonder what upset it. Been running on the same settings for a year or more.

Is your computer picking up any other networks in your area that may be new? Sounds like an interference issue. Glad you have it sorted anyway :thumbs:

Yes I see there is a new one that shows up when I scan for available networks.
All good now though.
