Question about Computers & Internet
We received a new modem for our DSL connection. Since we got the modem, my laptop says it is connected to the wireless connection, but nothing shows up. I called my local provider and they don't help with wireless problems. I would just like to be able to connect my laptop again.
When you say nothing shows up , are you talking about the internet ? More info there.
Try some generic things first. Go to the bottom right corner where the icons are. Right click on your wireless icon , and then choose repair. See if that helps.
Also, check the status of your firewalls to see if that is what is keeping you from connecting. I won't tell anyone to disable their firewalls, but windows firewall gave me such headaches, I switched to the free one from Zonelabs and it works nicely and is much more intuitive.
Write back if that doesn't seem to help and we'll go from there.
