    try checking ur router i had this issue when i got my new router it had a stupid little button on it to turn the wireless signal on/off and if u dont have that go into ur router and make sure ur wireless signal is turned on


  2. Hello and welcome to Tom's Hardware Forums.

    Use the details in our Sticky Post on how to find and change your wireless security key by looking at the settings in your router to change the name of the network - the SSID - to something unique to you. It's possible there's more than one Speedtouch 580 or whatever in your street.

    While you're in there, change the security key as well and go for the highest level - WPA2.
