Question about Computers & Internet
Ever since I switched from Bell Sympatico DSL to Rogers Cable Internet, my laptop refuses to connect by wire to the Internet via the router. However, I can connect to the Internet via the router on the PC. At first, it was not a huge problem. But these past few days, connectivity has been terrible, going linkdead every 15 minutes. Sometimes the wireless light would just be off... and it always says my network adapter is not installed, even though I have done nothing to disable it (except to repair the connection). Was there something I had to do when switching from one ISP to another? Because it's as if my laptop doesn't recognize a wired connection anymore, even when connecting directly from the modem to my laptop. So far all I've been doing is rebooting both laptop and router... but it's gotten so unreliable, and only adds to my aggravation. Hope someone can help. =/

Ok sounds as if ya got a right "Pickle" lol There are a few things we can try.. First I want you to reinstall your network adapter drivers, make sure they are the most-up-to-date. Then I want you to completely re-setup you internet connection from the beginning again, using the internet connection manager and connection wizard with setup a home network... I want you to Check your Ethernet Cable connections.. better still get a NEW Ethernet Cable.. Below is a link to help www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/ networking/setup/wired.mspx
