I realize this is probably the wrong forum for the topic but I dont see any other relative forum
So last night the cable guy came and gave us awireless modem for my mothers laptop. it's wired to my own compuiter, as I dont see mobility being an issue for a desktop, but my momw as sick of having to keep the laptop in one spot.. realy defeats the purpsoe, ya know?
Anyway, when the cable guy left it was working fine. Then my mom decided to take it into the ktciehn where she got a weak signal, so I informed her, it should still give you some connectivity, but she couldnt visit any websites.. So I took it back to the original spot the cable guy had it, got a slightly better signal, but still nothing. Then O decided to try repairing the network conection.. it got lamost completely done but failed to renew the ip address, and since has shown a little popup balloon by the wireless connection icon saying I have limited or no connectivity.
I've done everything I can think of (which isnt much) to fix this.. tried reseting the modem, powering down the computer THEN reseting, going into the netgear manager options and making sure it was connected to the proper network.. which it is.. Still saying I have a connection, but it's limited.. any help would be greatly appreciated
Oh, and after reading a 2nd post i went into the device manager and tried to update the network card, dint do a thing for me
