My computer doesn't have a wireless setting but I have bought a top of the range plug-in wireless adapter, which goes in a USB slot. When connected to the network the signal is strong at all times- between 4&5/5 bars.
We have been in this set up for a year in our last place and 6 months in our new place without any troubles.
Recently however, My internet connection has been 'screwy'. When i boot up my computer it say I am connected to the network with internet access, yet I cannot access the internet through ANY of my programs. I have to flash the modem/router (turn it off for 5-10 seconds before turning it back on) before anything will connect to the internet.
I have the solution but it is getting very frustrating to have to do it every time!
I also play WoW with Ventrilo (VoiP software) at the same time and my ping keeps dropping so low I get completely disconnected randomly in low intensity areas. It hasn't ever happened before now.
Are there any suggestions or tips to fix these problems?
