Default Sony Vaio can't connect to WNR 834B wireless router

I have a WNR 834B router set up for a wireless connection and I have lost the ability to connect to it today on the Sony laptop. Seems like the connection has dropped off. The laptop is using Windows Vista.

Do I need to do a factory reset on the router? What would of caused this drop out to occur since I have not changed any network settings or installed any new programs?

Also, I have forgotten may pasword to log into routerlogin.net. How do I reset my password?

Cheers,

Stanley

Do you know that routerlogin.net is the actual router itself and not an Internet site? If you didn’t originally change the router password then the default (user – admin / password – password) should still work, you will need to connect the PC to the router via cable. Was your wireless connection secured using encryption e.g. WPA?

If you are able to log into the router then you can go to the wireless section and change the security passphrase.

I've just tested my laptop today and for some odd reason it was able to connect to the internet this time.
Why would this be the case and would of caused the disconnection to occur in the first place?

if you use standby or hibernation mode can cause this.. check few times by shutting down the laptop on each use and see

Sorry it has been almost 2 years since I last posted here but this still remains an ongoing problem.

Where do I check my settings for the router?

Cheers
