i once fixed this problem but foigot the detailed step.

its something to do with the corrupted winsock setting. the fix was quite simple, just google "corrupted winsock"

Get a massive hammer, and lash you router for a good few minutes, take it back to the shop, telling them it doesn't work. They'll give you a replacement, which should work fine

thanks

Failing that right click on the network icon, diagnose and repair, which may sort it out, I do get this issue from time to time, if a D &R doesn't work, a system reboot with a router reboot usually works

try changing the channel th wireless works on - 6 or 11 work best.

how to change a channel ?

If it works wired but not wireless then there's a good chance that the router has had it! toconn's original diagnosis (although maybe not the remedy) could be right. :roll:

You need find the router manufacturers ip address.
You then type it into your address bar on your browser.
Then you can login and change channels (amongst other stuff)
Username and password are usually both "Admin"
Which router is it ?

I had this problem as well but not with AOL. I updated my onboard wireless drivers from the manufacturer's website and this sorted it. Worth a try!

192.168.0.1 is normally the router address for netgear routers. otherwise it should be written on the underside of the router. if memory serves me correctly so are the default user name and password (admin and password i think)

once logged into the router click wireless settings or similar and change the channel to something else.
