    My pc does not recognize my router

    Hello,
    I have just spoke with Lynksys about my problem and they say everything is
    fine with my router and I believe they are right. Whats happening is my
    desktop pc used to see my router under networking / Vista home premium. But
    now I cannot find it and when I search for wireless devices such as my new
    laptop / running vista home premium as well it cannot find the laptop. I have
    internet access on both the desktop and the laptop. How do I reconfigure my
    desktop to share between the 2. When I go to ip config from the start menu I
    notice on the black screen there is nothing listed for default gateway and on
    my laptop there is a default gateway number...

    please advice

    Hi
    Successful Sharing involves some general consideration in Network settings,
    http://www.ezlan.net/sharing.html
    As well as specific adjustment of each computer according to what it is
    allowed to be shared.

    I opened my device manager and found that under network adapters both the
    6to4 adapters have a yellow exclamation mark over them. My problems solution
    centre has been no help.
