Hi everyone,

First, thanks for taking up on this issue.

My wireless connection to the WPA secure base at home has suddenly stopped functioning. I still DO get connected to the network (using the correct password) but the browser does not work. This is while when I connect to one of the neighbors unsecured networks everything works. (Although here too I suddenly get disconnected or the signal strength decreases significantly and then comes back.) By the way, when I connect to LAN (ethernet) everything works perfectly.

Thanks a lot for you help,

-Leon

Do you mean that your browser does not work when you connect to your router and when you cannot to your neighbor your browser is able to display a website?

Then that means there is no problem with either the browser. It has something to do with the securityof your computer and the router. The router firewall might be in conflict with your computer firewall. Disabling the latter might help you isolate the problem. Also try changing the security of your router from WPA to WEP. WEP is more stable, although less secured it makes the internet connection more stable. You dont need a really secured wireless connection because guessing a 7-10 key network password is hard to do and i will not waste my time doing that (if i am one of your neighbor).

Hey,

Thanks for your reply. After checking everything I found out earlier today that the problem is hardware: the cables outside the house was bad. I called the cable people and everything works fine now.

Thanks and sorry for the trouble.
