Vista internet connection through Linksys router only partial

Internet worked til router reset. Then wouldn't work at all. Unplugged all connections, turned router on off, re-reset it, and now get partial connectivity.

During all this time two other computers, both XP, one wired, one wireless, worked fine.

Currently, loads, loads until, then hangs, loads until,then hangs, etc.

AVG will not update, filehippo update determines needs, can't download from (hangs.)

email identifies email to be downloaded, but will not retrieve it. I can send e-mail(!)

    Wow, I have the same issue - thought I was going nutty since the symptoms are so odd! Just started 2 days ago. Linksys WAG325N and a new Dell Studio laptop running Vista. I've tried a rebuild of the laptop, firmware upgrade to 1.00.12 for the router, factory reset the router, but no luck. Another Vista PC does same thing (can ping sites, even tracert some, but trying to browse them it won't work. An XP laptop from work plugged into the router works fine. Even weirder though is I can take the Vista laptop and router to another site and it works fine - the only difference is the location has changed (and the lead from the router to the telephone wall socket)!

Cannot obtain internet through router

Try resetting the router and modem. Unplug them both from the electrical outlet. Leave them unplugged for at least 1 minute. Then plug the modem in, let it establish a connection, then plug the router in. Do this with your pc turned off. After you reset the router and modem, plug them all back together and into the pc, then turn the pc back on.
