Internet issues

Postby Bri » Thu Jan 20, 2011 10:41 am

Does anyone have any solutions for when your wireless network suddenly doesn't seem to connect to your computer for short periods?

It's really strange; my internet appears to be working perfectly on my work computer; it connects to any internet site I ask it to, and seems pretty fast. Whereas on my personal computer, the connectivity is very spotty and goes in and out. I've tried restarting, resetting the router; everything I can think of, but it still is having issues. Given that it seems fine on my work computer, I don't think it's the router is the issue, but every time I try a diagnostic on my computer to see why it's having trouble, it comes up with nothing. I'm at a loss; any suggestions?

Your wireless card could be dying.

That might very well explain it; I wasn't aware a wireless card COULD die.

Do they sell those at Best Buy and are they relatively easy to replace?

They are very easy to replace.

You could also buy a USB net stick. That's what I am using right now actually... I don't remember why I took out my hardwire.....

Anyway, I love it. This is what I am using: http://www.belkin.com/IWCatProductPage. ... _Id=459648

And those work with existing wireless routers?

I have a Netgear N router; model number WNR2000

Are they available at Best Buy? There's one right down the street from me, so that's where I tend to go for my electronics. *grins sheepishly*

Wait; I updated my drivers and it appears to be working a lot better... I'll give it a few minutes and see if that fixes it.

Didn't work; I am now posting thanks to my brand new Netgear N600 Wireless Dual Band USB Adapter.
