I know it may sound weird but here we go. My dell Inspiron laptop won't connect to the Internet half the time especially late at night. It will say limited connection and will not let me connect. I always have to restart my computer to connect to the network and lately I have to restart a few times an hour just to catch a connection. Here's the weird part, my fathers computer is also connected to our internet and it seems like when his computer is turned off we are able to connect with no problem. Does that make any sense? Lastly I updated my computer and an icon called homegroup appears occasionally on my screen. It goes away and I've read it's not a virus but I know I did not download anything to share files and my father wouldn't have either. Is someone connecting to my internet? Do I have a virus? What do i do?
