  • How long does it take before you get the message "unable to connect to (router name)"? And what OS are you on Win XP or Vista? Have you tried changing the broadcast channel for the wireless signals?

My internet signal keeps going in and out. It is difficult to do anything. The internet and wireless lights are blinking on the router. Is the blinking normal?

blinking is normal coz it tells you that you have connection betwwen your computer and router. you have to check your ISP for the intermittent connection that you are getting. there might be reported problem in your area or there is a downtime in your ISP.

Step 11 and 12...

I would guess you didn't do it in the correct order.

Are you 100% positive th  Ethernet cables are in the right ports?

Check the one that goes from the modem, to the router.

If that doesn't help, would you let me remotely control your PC and see what it looks like?
