My linksys router decided to loose all its settings and not connect to Bt broadband.
Got that back up via Cat 5 cable but my laptop refuses to connect through WLAN.
Reset linksys and laptop.
In network connection it keeps saying AQUIRING NETWORK CONNECTION, But fails.
Win ZP bottom left in Details there is:
I think this is the problem but how do i enter the ADDRESS's that i have got in my router to my laptop ??

You don't. The router automatically gives the laptop a network address.

When you reset the Linksys, did you set up wireless encryption again? Make sure that you have the same encryption at the router and the laptop - it's best to get it working without encryption and then set the encryption later.
