My wireless router won't work on my new cable service. Any ideas?

I had my secured connection up and running with no problems a couple days ago. Then we moved everything to our new house and when I set up the connection, my laptop said my wireless connection to my router is excellent, my desktop said the LAN connection is good to go but I can't access the Internet. Looked like a DNS problem. I brought up the command prompt and did a release and renew and I secured an IP address with no problems. I also tried repair just in case. I didn't change anything on my router, such as key and password. I thought it would be a simple switchover because I switched from one cable provider to another one. What am I missing ? Thanks in advance for your answers. Windoze XP Pro

I think it's quite impossible. The router config is saved in the firmware...i don't think the problem is this. First ask your ISP,then,if there's no other solution try to modify something.And if it says to you "the problem is SURELY yours" don't care,try again to call it,and specify tha your config is ok.

I agree. Even if you change your ISP your router settings should stay the same as routers normally get the IP address from the modem automatically - and if you haven't changed your settings it has to be an issue on their side. If all else fails you can call your router manufacturer. If that fails, switch back to your old ISP! :)
