Now, to the problem. I have an HP Media Center PC m8020n. It refuses to connect to the internet. If it is not dropping the connection to NETGEAR, it is only showing a local connection that has no internet access. It also says that the connection is really low when it does say that it has internet connection. When it says it has internet connection, I go to the Internet Browser and nothing shows up. Shortly after the connection will update and show only local again and sometimes it will drop out. I am really confused about it because I tested the connection with my Macbook at a distance much greater than the HP's distance, so it can't be the distance. Unless having the PC in a cabinet/desk combo can block the connection THAT much.
The computer is using Vista.
