This morning my internet was extremely slow and I restarted my router. My computer registered internet connection and I could now use my wireless printer and scanner without problem. However, when I wanted to go to google.com my browser showed my the homepage of my router instead of the actual webpage. Windows N. Connectivity says I have to log in. I did that but nothing happens. How can I fix this? Sorry if this is the wrong forum.

Contrary to the message displayed by the computer it sounds like the router is not connected to the world wide web. Your wireless printer and scanner both work on a local intranet with your router as an intermediary between your PC and device. They don't need internet to function. All though your router is on and broadcasting a wireless signal it does not have an internet connection. I would provide a soft reset on the router/modem by unplugging it for 60 seconds. Also ensure to restart the computer itself. If it doesn't solve the issue there could be a service provider disruption or the device may have failed.


I think there is subscription problem and you need to call you internet services provider. they will tell you the exact issue and solution.
