Default Re: Wireless Internet Cutting in and out

I tried reseting my router and it still didn't work. I still get the same error message.

"windows is unable to connect to the selected network. The network may no longer be in range. Please refresh the list of avaiable networks, and try to connect again"

I know that the wireless adapter is finding the right network cause when I change the network name it will come up on the computer with the wireless adapter

Okay just an update. Last night i put the two computers right beside each other so the router and wireless adapter were about 3 inches away and when i searched for wirless networks sometimes it would come up with nothing in range. When it did come up with something i still got the same error message. I also tried all the different ssid channels.

I have spent at least a good 6 hours trying to fix this, so anyone who helps/tries to help willl get rep. I am starting to think that my wireless adapter crapped out. What do you guys think?

I think we will have to start from scratch, what brand of router have you got?, if we can get your desktop online then we halfway there.

I have your router instructions in front of me, connect the router up then go to your router and open it up and we will go through the settings.

Put your username and password in or ADMIN AND LEAVE PASSWORD BLANK if you have reset your router.
