Post 3+ Months Ago

So I went out the other day to come back to my laptop having no internet. Not sure what happened. Coming to Ozzu now because you guys helped me last time with great information.

A little bit of information so as to give a better sense of my situation.

I'm staying at a relative's house, I may or may not be allowed to factory reset the router. I have asked and am allowed to get onto the online settings for the router now.

I am running Win7 64-bit.
Router is a D-Link WBR-2310. Laptop has the newest Atheros AR9285 Wireless Net Adapter.

I have, in my list of known wireless networks, SSID: dlink, WPA: 1921680096 was the password. I have checked the 'connect without broadcast' and that was how it was when I left. I came back to a red X on my wireless connection icon in my tray. Now, in my list of wireless connections I only get one connection named 'Other Network' which I believe to be the dlink I used to connect to. One thing I noticed was upon hovering on this connection, the tooltip says it's using WPA2-PSK which was not the original WPA it was using previously. Nothing else has been changed to my knowledge.

So far I have:

1. Cycled both router and modem(cable).
2 Ipconfig renew/release.
3. Plugged into the router via ethernet. This allows me an internet connection.
4. Rolled back wireless driver, uninstalled/reinstalled wireless driver.

If you need anything else, I will add it ASAP. Thank you for any time you spend to help me with this issue.

Re add the wireless network profile so it does a fresh setup.

I guess it is connecting using old settings.
