I installed a new wireless router yesterday. My ACT program was working fine up till that point. Now I can't get onto the program. It says something about network connection. I am using Windows 7 software. I am not sharing this database with anyone else. Any ideas on how to make this work?

Travis: Thanks for your help. I tired a couple of things that only said local database because this is not a shared one. The narrowed the field a little bit. The one that solved it was the: SQL Server Browser and SQL Server (ACT7) Service
This issue can result if the SQL Server Browser and/or SQL Server (ACT7) service is disabled or simply not started. It took a little extra work because I am using Windows 7 and it does not come with the "run" box option enabled. How to go in first and figure out how to do that. Fortunately there is always the internet that gives you the solution. So when I finally got the services.msc box on the screen I noticed that the SQL Server (ACT7) was not started. The instructions in that link that you gave me really helped because you could go through step by step. I also restarted the SQL Server Browser as per the instructions. Now everything seems to be working just fine.
Again thanks for your help
