Wireless Home Network Internet not working

by cookiegirl73 / February 20, 2008 7:22 AM PST

I'm trying to set up a wireless home network. I have connected the router and modem to my desktop and we have two laptops:one is wireless and the other on eis not, I have to use the USB wireless adaptor. I set up the network and the wireless laptop already receives the signal. (I haven't set up my other lap top) At first, the internet works on both my desktop and the wireless laptop. But a few minutes later, the connection gets "lost" and then I'm not able to connect to the internet anymore using the wireless connection. Any suggestions? Thank You-

Try setting up you wireless router

like the Forum Sticky suggests. This will fix your connection from dropping.

Also 2.4gh cordless phones use the same frequencies as your wireless router and you can and will get disconnected if using one.

Try reinstalling the USB wireless adapter at your laptop. Do you get its icon at the system tray (near the clock) ? Do you get any pop up messages ?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
