Wireless network wont connect unless adapter is plugged in ?

Basically,

I recently found out my router username and password and so was opening a few ports for some software im using.

I accidently went to the unpn tab and there was a list of port numbers which were already there (around 7 or so) anyway, Instead of clicking cancel to leave the tab I clicked done and they all vanished ......

I panicked, clicked back on the browser and they were there again.

I then took a screen shot to note down all the numbers,

I then quit my browser, went back into the router settings, clicked unpn and nothing .....

ok,

so recently I was using my laptop which is not directly connected to the wireless router and accidently pulled out my 'marvell yukon' network adapter, I use it to help with the internet when im near a plug socket.

And then I clicked refresh page and 'page could not be displayed', my network lost connection,

now when I go to my router settings it says connected with limited access.

So the only way I can connect to the internet is when Im plugged in with my marvel yukon thing.

Is this somehting to do with my unpn settings vanishing ??

also I have updated my network card drivers.

Perfectly up to date!!

Any help would be greatly appreciated !!

kind regards, Jack

Did you backup your routers settings to a file anytime recently ?
If so, follow the instructions for resetting your router and then login to it and upload the backup file settings into the router.
If you don't have a backup file, since a reset will take it back to default settings, you should then be able to login to your router (with default username and password) and manually add the settings you need - ports, security settings, ISP settings if it's got an built in ADSL modem , etc.
Then make a backup file of this configuration as soon as you have manually entered and proved (tested) all the settings.
If you still have problems, repost with details of make and model of router and all other appropriate information.

I am bumping this thread because I am still curious as to what action(s) ultimately solved the original poster's problem.
