Re: my computer keeps restarting when i have my wifi..
It looks like your computer is overheating. I am assuming that you place your laptop on a table and it works fine for 20 minutes. After it gets hot, it shuts down. If it did not shut down and turn off, it would burn up and die. The fans and vents on your laptop are on the bottom of your computer. Place your computer on something that will allow air to circulate and cool your computer. There are stands that you can buy from 20 to 50 dollars that you can place your laptop on that will alleviate this problem. Let me know if this solves your problem. Paul Marchand Paul@GoKWIC.Net

You can configure it to not connect to any available network. The settings vary depending on the Windows version, but it is possible in all versions to set this. If you are using a third party WiFi program, you can generally define the preference in network sequence to connect to.
A common problem I have come across using wifi in a domestic setting is that of co-channel interference caused by neighbouring wifi routers...ie your neighbours router using the same channel as yours.
Try changing your routers "channel", which can normally be done relatively easily using the routers built-in web interface. If you no longer have the manual, post the routers make and model and I'll send you the link.
Your card is ok. There is interference between the router and your computer.
1. The router or the PC may be "hidden" behind a metal cabinet, refrigerator, etc.
2. Move router higher
3. Microwave ovens and some cordless phones (not cellphones) that use 2.4GHz will interfere with the 2.4GHz WiFi signal.
4. Point the router antennas in-line with the direction of the PC.
5. Move the router closer to the PC.
Hi spring chicken.
Two ways of going about this, cost about the same, £15 - £20. Your computer needs to talk to wireless tower, this is done by a plug in USB wireless dongle, (small stick, plugs in computer USB port) or by a wireless PCI card that fits inside your desktop in a PCI slot,(white slots on your motherboard,3or 4 of them side by side) Both ways are straight forward plug & play. You say you are near a wifi tower, this is fine as long as you are in what we call a wifi hotspot, where the owner of the tower allows unrestricted access to other users, Library's & the such allow this service. Your dongle or card will let you see if the networks are security encripted (WEP) or open unsecured. A secured network requires a network key to be used, (an 8 or 20 digit number set by the owner)
You can only get free network access in a hotspot.
Or ask the owner of a nearby network if they would be kind enough to allow to use their network, you will need a security code from them.
Hope this helps, do have a nice day.
Having gone so far, I think the next thing you should do now is to get to the wireless properties and then assign an IP Address, Subnet mask and the Default Gateway for the Internet and you will be amazed to be connected. If you have not disabled and enabled the wireless device you may do that before proceeding to the step above. The pc should be restarted after the exercise ok. Good luck
It sounds like the wire from your house to the isp switch is faulty you should probably call them down to fix. Or it could just be the modem are you using the same modem for both computers? If so then that's probably the problem.
