SO now I have no clue of what to do.Does anyone know what causes this issue and how to fix it? Any help will be extremely appreciated.

    Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt:
    (For Vista type CMD in the Search box after Start)

    Type the following command:

    IPCONFIG /ALL

    [Note that there is no space between the slash and ALL.]

    Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
    Paste the results in a message here.

    If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.

    hi,
    Is it your laptop firewall? If not, as recommended, go for the reset, it should save your connection settings, but note them anyway. Sometimes linksys routers get funny about what PC it allows to manage it but to not be able to even see the router GUI sounds like the process on the router has hung.
