    I am not sure, but it would appear you have the wireless setup under your user account - remove it, log on as Administrator and set it up again.

    Do you have a DSL connection that requires a login?? you did not mention what type of connection you had?

    cable connections usually do not require login.. Does the problem only come up when using wireless? have you tried to do it wired?? If the problem does not arise using a wired connection and it seems to happen only when you switch users it might be the wireless connection setup for that user.. Not sure if wireless connections are part of a windows user profile (like desktop, my documents etc.)..
