Hi people, let me begin for apologizing if there is already a solution out there but it's really hard for me to seek it mostly because of my turtlish internet and a lot of failed attempts imitating other solutions found around the net.

This has been going on for more than a month now, and I am running out of options. I have spent literally hours with my network provider hotline (Telfort, in Holland) having spoken with at least 4 different people who concluded there's nothing wrong on their side. Ever since I've done the following:

-Upgraded the router firmware (the Telfort people did it for me)
-Updated the drivers for my usb adapter.
-Tried surfing around different channels/freqs for interference to no avail
-Bought a range extender
-Tried enabling/changing/disabling my protection, nada. (At the moment I have a WPA-PSK and Mac filtering on)
-Tried connecting a (really long) ethernet cable directly between router/pc, but I get no connection whatsoever (local only, no internet)

By the way, my desktop pc is upstairs, and the router downstairs. I am aware it might be far, but my gf also has problems with her laptop therefore it has to be something else.

I will post my data below, with some links to some screenshots from the router webpage in case there is some dodgy option (de)/activated. Please keep in mind that I am not a hotshot and know literally nawt about internet/wireless etc.


Windows Vista Home Premium
Service Pack1

Inter® Pentium® Dual CPU E2200 " 2.20GHz 2.20 GHz
Memory RAM 4.00GB

-Zyxel Wireless Router/Modem

-Sitecom Wireless USB Adapter XR 300N
(Wireless Network 300N USB dongle WL-302)
Driver version

-Sitecom Wireless Range Extender 300N








I can also post a Hijack This log, if it helps.

PS. I have read several possible solutions online in different forums, but I suppose every case is probably different, that's why I decided to post my data.

Thanks in advance, any help would be vastly appreciated

Alright, with the danger of sounding impatient/ungrateful, is there some obvious forum rule I didn't follow? I'm basically asking because there have been answers to a lot of more recent posts, and I really tried to gather all the facts regarding my issue therefore I assume I may not have phrased it right or something.

Thanks, and sorry if I sound pushy :)
