    **Update: Working Fine Now***

    I have Windows Vista on a DELL Inspiron E1505. I have the Linksys wireless G router that everyone and their mother has. When my laptop is on my desk, I just plug the ethernet cable from the Linksys router to my laptop. Yesterday and today, I couldn't get it to connect. I have tried unplugging everything from the router and unplugging the router and then plugging everything back in. In Vista, when I hover over the computer icon it tells me that I have a limited connection to my network and that I also have a limited connection to an unidentified network. The only way I can get on the internet is to wireless connect to my router. And that only worked once I went in an restored all of my router's defaults. Does anyone have any suggestions?
