Thank you for the update on the issue and sorry for delayed response.

Assuming that you are putting in the proper password for your wifi, here is how you can reconnect or connect to your wireless.

1) log into your wireless router via the computer using it's device IP address. It is probably written on the back of your router. I.e. for time warner cable the address is "". A Lynksis router is "". If you are not sure of the ip address search google for " [name of your router] router admin ip address". To log into your device simply type the ip address in a web browser.

2) make sure wireless security mode setting is set to "wpa/wpa2-psk"

3) If it's not, set it to that setting and click apply

If it's set to wpa/wpa2-psk then it's probably a hardware issue with your router. A hackerish way to get around this is to select WPA, hit apply, and then reset to wpa-wpa2.

Your problems should be fixed from here, if issue still persist post us back with the current status of your computer and we will be happy to assist you.
