    I've recently moved into a new flat and am using a different router to before. It takes ages "identifying" the network and then says the network is identified and I cannot connect to the internet.

    The rest of my housemates laptops connect fine and I can connect via an ethernet cable but just not wirelessly. I was at my old house yesterday connecting fine wirelessly but suddenly it seems not to work.

    I have tried looking for answers on forums but often the answers are too technical for me.

    Any help would be really appreciated!

    The most common wireless standards are B, G, and N.
    • Which standard's does the router support?
    • Which standard does the notebook support?

    Encryption methods are Unsecure(which is no encryption), WEP, WPA, or WPA2
    • What encryption method is the router using?
    • Does your notebook support this encryption method?
