    I lost connection to the Internet on my desktop yesterday, upon trying to reconnect I received a page asking me for the PIN to my router, at first I entered what I believed to be the correct PIN after which I realized it accepts any 4 digit PIN I enter. It then asks me to assign a name and security options followed by a page informing me it could not configure the router. My laptop has remained connected to the Internet without issue.

    Win Vista 64
    Linksys WRT120N

    Here is the process in screenshots:

    I am able to connect to my router (192.168.1.1) via my laptop but not my desktop:

    I have not hard reset my router for fear that my laptop could lose connectivity as well.


    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Click Manage Wireless Networks in the Network and Sharing Center and delete the saved network, then try to connect to the network from scratch.
