Internet help

Hi all

At my partners house, her internet seems temperamental in the fact that, her laptop connects most of the time to the internet, her Computer does not connect anymore.

My iphone does not connect anymore, and neither does my macbook now.

IT went through a stage of working when it wanted, but now it doesn't at all.

Anyone care to explain why the laptop works 7/10 times with the internet.

Have you tried rebooting the router?

Many times.
Her ISP is Virgin

Yeah it says its connected, but web pages dont load.
Phone or cable?
So you mean the wireless is temperamental and not the Internet?

No, ive plugged it via ethernet to direct to the router, still no luck.
can she still get emails, msn?

on the laptop yes, can do anything on laptop, other pc iphone macbook, no luck.

Its like something is set up for the laptop, but nothing else can do anything
No security / firewall settings have been altered have they?

Nope nothing has changed.
might be a problem with the router, as i said my lappy is the exact same and all the other pc's work fine, as does the wii, ds's and ps2
cant find the problem with my lappy even after a fresh reinstall.
hope someone will be able to help :thumbsup:

Oh right cheers, have you tried swapping your router?
Anybody have any ideas?
Also when the router is restarted, the wireless networks in windows becomes password protected(it is currently open), then changes again to unsecured.

Just found the address to access the router control panel, will try that later.
Change the wireless channel.

can you explain this please?
cheers for that mate, just got some info from you and the net. will give it a try later, pretty sure this will solve it.
just downloaded that, will give it a try.
yes its sorted, changed the channel, and now made it secure.
All good.
Thanks all, will rep later.
