All attempts on my end to re-set it were fruitless. The best of the lot was the Windows Diagnostic that told me In the infamous phraseology of the late Yogi Berra, to log onto the internet to find out why I couldn't log onto the internet.
Now have big new (expensive) router that actually lets me stay on LJ for more than 1/2 a second at a time!
I can now play 'Left Turn @ Albuquerque'(internet edition) all I want!! XD
[Now if I could only figure out why my scanner/printer won't let me scan my pictures any more so I can post them.]
