i've been home for a few days now and my wireless on my laptop keeps bugging out.. aim will stay online, but once i try to go to a webpage, it'll take a while to load up and say "cannot be found".. i'll repair the internet and it'll work fine for a few minutes, and i'll have to do it again.. is there something wrong wtih my computer? i've got the connection--it shows that it's connected and everything.. :tazz:

You say AIM keeps working and you can send and recieve when this happens?

When mine does about this same thing I reset the wireless router. I just unplug it for a second and plug it back in. Then usually good to go.

:tazz: What is probably wrong is that you have over-priced & lousy AOL
as your Internet service Provider !? See the front page of
www.freedomlist.com for "cheap" & good ISP's .
And of the 3 major IM's, AIM seems to have periodic security
breaches, so I prefer the "safer" Yahoo IM .
