  1. My pc was networked to my 15 year old sons pc by a router that says it is called "D-Link" 2.4 GHZ wireless router.

    My son was playing with the settings I think yesterday and now he cant get access to the internet

    I didnt set up the network (I paid someone ages ago) and I dont know much about pc's and I cant afford to get anyone out again

    Is there some way I can fix it myself??

    I have tried system restore and it doesnt work

    can anyone help us?

    thank you

    If you messed up the router, then restoring your PC is not going to help.

    The first thing would be to dig out the router's manual (should be downloadable from D-Link's website) and find out how to do a "factory reset". That is unless you have a tiny button on the router saying "reset" or something.

    If the thing doesn't work with factory defaults, follow the setup guide in the manual.

    the router shows on my sons being "on" yet it doesnt connect to the internet.

    thats why I thought it must be the pc.

    sorry I'm not good at explaining..........any idea's??

    Off the top of my head, that model is jst a router, so you must have a cable connection coming into it, or a connection from a modem. If its cable, verify that it works on a sigle PC without the router.
