Hi... I have a Wireless Network setup with Cable DSL Modem and NetGear Wireles router. The one computer that is connected to the network using a wireless adapter works fine. I hardly ever lose connection with that computer and reconnecting to the network is not an issue (disable / repair). BUT... I have a very frustrating probem with the Main computer which is connected to the wireless router with an ethernet cable. The network icon shows I am connected to the network ( "status - connected", "speed 108Mbps") but I lose connection to the internet, outlook express, yahoo/aim/msn, etc after about 20 minutes from startup. The only way I can get it working again is to reboot each time (FRUSTRATING!). I can't disable and repair it either. I even had a support tech here to set up my network and they have been back to repair but it still has the same problem. Hoping someone can help me out. I'm not computer savy at all so please bear with me. This has been going on from day one with this network connection even after the tech re-installed it. Please help. Any info you need I will be glad to supply.
By the way.. right now I can browse the last site I visited even by starting a new Internet Explorer page but I can't browse any other websites. Can't even go to my home page "Google" but I can stop the page from searching for google and enter the last website visited and it will go to it without an issue.
