Internet problems

by Salincer / December 3, 2007 7:05 AM PST

Okay so out of the oridinary, my computer stops showing some myspace pictures; so im like "okay..myspace is having downs....okay"..but the problem still consist. so i get on my laptop and check to see what happens when i get on there....and it works (its through my wireless router). And it does it alot now too, like ebay, etc. So i tried getting foxfire...same happened there. Tried uninstalling it...nothing new happened. I also tried right clicking my connection and repair it. and then it would work...then about 5 min would be back where i started. Ive tried rebooting, nothing there. So im out of ideas...i dont want to constently rightclick repair every five minutes. I dont have zonealarm, im using the windows XP firewall, i run Ad-aware, AVG, and spybot weekly to keep my computer running nice..i updated it. anyone have any suggestions?

thanks, Salincer

The basics are missing from your post so I'm stumped. Try what our forum sticky items first.
