Wireless Network Problems

  1. I'm having problems with my wireless network. DSL is my source of connection and I've got the wireless router so I didn't have to hard wire my pc upstairs. PC#1 is connected to the router physically, the PC#2 (mine) and the laptop are using the wireless. The laptop is connected just fine, but my pc started having problems lately and for the past week was not able to connect. I see the wireless network and my signal is good, but I am not able to use any browser to connected to the internet.

    PLEASE HELP :confused:

    Wow.... okay, this is a very uninformative post, but I'll try.

    Are you using WEP Encryption?

    ~If you are, then use the hard-wired computer to disable it (I'm assuming you know how) And try to connect from the Wireless PC that isn't workin now.

    If not, then try some of these (In the order listed):

    ~Try uninstalling/reinstalling the drivers for your Wireless NIC on the computer.

    ~Make sure the NIC is fully inserted into the PCI Slot. (It might have come loose)

    ~Try to replace the Wireless NIC, if possible.

    ~Try upgrading the firmware of the Router. (Through the HARD-WIRED Computer ONLY!)

    If none of these help, let us know.

    Also, try repairing the connection, and make sure there are no IP conflicts between your computer and the laptop.
