I have a ZyXEL wireless router, it was working fine up until about a year ago when the wireless function decided to stop working so now we have to connect wires from the box to our computers and laptops. The internet still works fine, it's not our computers/laptops that are causing the problem, it's the actual wireless thingy that's decided to stop working! I don't know how to get it running again and it's really annoying because I can't take my laptop anywhere! My laptop connects and runs smoothly on any other wireless just not ours. Help?! Thanks!
