I think it is that your internet is not fast enough .. your dad computer draws all the signal leaving none for you .. as it is wireless I find it fascinating have never herd of this before .. as I said we have four computers in our home and they are all working at this moment by wireless .. the only thing can suggest you try is a direct connection and see if it still happens I suspect it might but the other way round perhaps we have a 20mb broad band and when all the computers are on the draw 5mb each so you see it is relative to the size of your connection .. Regards Vortash

I can't access my wireless internet, asking for a pass phrase


the D Link router is what is causing the issue - Cut your losses and get a linksys ( netgears are ok so maybe one of those ) but avoid D Link and Belkin equipment as far as wireless or networking goes.

An apple airport extreme ( although a bit more expensive ) are very good.

No connectivity after changing locations


try to go to safe mode by tapping F8 after the dell screen at startup, check if system can get a webpage.it is evident that your dad can connect to the internet because he can access and download his emails. Try to reset IE7 by clicking tools on IE7, then go to internet options, go to advanced tab, click reset button. If still if still could not connect, uninstall then reinstall anti virus sw.

No connection


One thing to check is to make sure your dad connected to your wireless environment because so many people have wireless routers today he may have accidentally connected to a neighbor, and the low/non-existent signal strength will cause him to not have an internet connection. Also make sure no one messed with the router configuration because there is an option to turn off the wireless capability of the router. If it got turned off then turn it on and you should be good to go.
