    Wierd wifi issue


    I get my wifi using 2 adapters. Today suddenly both of them stopped displaying the router in the wifi utility, and in windows wifi panel. But my phone is perfectly receiving the signal. I tried restoring, reinstalling windows, but nothing works. I know it's not a wifi issue on my computer, coz when I turn on the Hotspot on my phone, my lap receives the signal. So is it a issue with the router? Then how can my phone receives data from it? I'm totally nonplussed here.

    Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

    It is entirely possible for routers to ignore specific stations, though normally you have to do this through the router control panel.

    Normally, the router is at http://192.168.x.y (x is usually 0 or 1, y is usually 254), but you should have a nice sticker on the back of the router giving the address, username and password for logging into the router itself.
    As a security measure, some routers will only allow you to do this over a wired connection. Does your laptop work if you patch a wired link into the router?

    When was the last time you rebooted the router?
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
