    This issue is usually caused by resetting a router without resetting all the network connected devices

    Turn off everything on the network, ALL the machines and any other network device like network printers and NAS drives.
    Turn off the router and modem.
    Turn on the modem, wait for a steady data light.
    Turn on the router, wait two minutes.
    Turn on the network devices and computers, one at a time.

    Hi,

    It is likely to be that static IP's have been assigned or DHCP is not working correctly.

    I would first check the 2 hard wired machine's LAN properties, then check the wireless & make sure that they are set to auto as shown here
    If that does not solve your issue, then it could be DHCP within your router.

    Thanks to you both. :D

    We have been turning off the router at night BUT not the modem as well as bringing up the wireless from sleep mode!:argh:

    We are also checking the network settings.

    More later!
