Found 3rd Oct 2009
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.

Regards

So you mean the wireless is temperamental and not the Internet?

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.
