Unidentified Network?
Using a Toshiba Laptop with a standard BT HomeHub and Windows Vista Basic.

My wife has had this laptop for about 5 months, and we've not had a problem
connecting to our wireless internet before. Then, in the last couple of days
it is refusing to connect to the hub. I tried pinging the hub and got error
1231 returned.

Using the built in Atheros AR5005G Wireless Network Adaptor

Anybody have any ideas?

Power Cycle the Router? Off then on again? Yup, no effect.

Re: Unidentified Network?
please post the text output of ipconfig /all
http://digitalmediaphile.wordpress.c...t-text-output/

can you try a system restore to a point where it was working?

was there a driver update for the Atheros that you installed
automatically? there have been a few recently. you might want to try
rolling back the driver.
