I Need To Delete This Network!

  1. Hello. I have a problem. I recently set up a wirless internet connection for my grandmother's laptop. Upon doing this, I set up the desktop to connect through a gateway. My problem is, the gateway is slowing down my connection. I know this because when I used to get download speeds of up to 165 kilobytes/sec. Now, I only receive download speeds of up to 90 kilobytes/sec. Now, do I disconnect the modem from the gateway, plug it into the computer, and use the Network Setup Wizard to reconfigure the connection?

    You can go directly form the modem to the computer and it.
    Just bring up a command prompt and type:

    ipconfig /release

    and then:

    ipconfig /renew and it should get an ip address just fine from the modem.
