mac/pc router issue

By m.dyer ·
Hi. Just got a new macbook and trying to connect it to the wireless router where I live. It worked the first time I tried, but once I'd closed out of Safari that first time it won't connect again- says it has no connectivity even when I'm sitting right next to the router. Everyone else in the house has pc and I don't know if that would affect anything, but I tend to doubt it since it worked once. Anyone have thoughts on what I should try?

If the Mac is showing no network connectivity at all, it has nothing to do with other computers on the network. Make sure your wireless switch, if present, is on. Check your Network Preferences to see what the problem might be. You probably need to configure something here, and/or at the router.
