Connection just drops in and out
We have been having on and off problems with our router and internet, culminating in the following situation.
When I boot up my computer, the wireless connection does not work. It says it is connected, but no internet traffic makes it through: It just hangs on "Looking up www.google.com" if I try to open Google.
I have to turn off and turn back on the connection to get it to work, and that is only a temporary fix.
Other times, the same thing where it is connected but there is no activity in occurs during internet time, or while I am on Xbox Live.
It is not our internet, as I can plug the computer straight into the modem and it works, but the router doesn't.
We have a NetGear WGR614 v5 wireless router. The Windows computers are updated with SP2.
I have tried turning everything off and then sequencially turning everything back on-modem, router, computers. This works sometimes, but I do not want to have to do this every day.
Any help out there?
Thanks in advance
