    None of your above three posts are making a lot of sense to me. Please take a deep breath and try again to describe the problem and the network with which you are seeking help.

    Okay here goes. My wifi card goes in and out. I can be online one minute and it shuts off. I have to trouble shoot the problem all the time. It is driving me nuts. I went into the wifi connection to make sure the automatic connection was checked. Hope this helps.

    OK, integrated. If you can easily access it through a cover on the laptop's bottom remove and carefully and firmly replace it several times. This will fix any potential looseness or corrosion problems. Make sure the antenna leads are secure.

    Hi well I did what you said and am still having problems. I waited a few days to see if it is doing the same thing and it is. This message keeps poping up which I posted below. I am starting to wonder if my uncles XP is have issues because it seems as if his internet is real slow for some reason.


    This Connection is Untrusted





    You have asked Firefox to connect
    securely to mail.yahoo.com, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure.
    Normally, when you try to connect securely,
    sites will present trusted identification to prove that you are
    going to the right place. However, this site's identity can't be verified.



    What Should I Do?

    If you usually connect to
    this site without problems, this error could mean that someone is
    trying to impersonate the site, and you shouldn't continue.

    That sounds like a problem with the Firefox web browser. What happens if you try to get your Yahoo! e-mail using Internet Explorer or Chrome?

    You can download Chrome here.
    www.google.com/chrome

    All Windows operating systems have Internet Explorer. You can try that without downloading anything.

    What is the problem that your uncle is having? You first said that he couldn't connect at all. Then you said that he couldn't connect to Yahoo! e-mail. Now you're saying the connection is slow. All of these problems have different solutions.
