Well, thanks everybody ... I reset the password, got into the network, reset all the defaults, fudged around with the settings and voila, we have take-off. I'm not going to get ahead of myself though b'c the original problem was intermittent Internet access. We'll see how long I can stay on w/o getting kicked out!

Hey, does anybody know if I switch between my wireless connection and ethernet connection, that would cause confusion to the modem and/or router? My laptop is relatively new so I wanted to "test out" the ethernet connection. Hooking up that cord is about the only "change" I've done since all this Internet problem started. If the cord is in, the wireless is off and vice versa ... I can't see how that would cause a confusion!

Some times you can have two connections and IPs to the router by connecting both at the same time. I normally disable the connection I am not using to speed startup.

To continue testing your reset of the router, make sure your only using the wireless connection as that is what your having problems with.

We tried my husband's desktop yesterday and the same thing happened. Basically our Internet connection is intermittent and I can't figure out why! I haven't done anything to my modem, router nor computer to "instigate" this problem. I hate going through tech support b'c they are useless. Can anybody give me some diagnositic advice? I know you can do something with "ipconfig" in DOS and release the IP address but Idon't know the actual command. Also, if I release the IP address will it try to find a new address when I try to connect again?
Are you saying that the Internet connection is slow? It happens to me all the time and that is the kind of thing that infuriates me.
