    so i just moved to a new apartment where i receive wireless internet service from the landlord
    the problem is that after a few hours of being online i get limited or no connectivity
    i'm not really sure if the landlord here has something that limits the amount of time one can be online but she's old and mean so she'll probably not care about my problem
    i wanted to know if there is anyway of making the system or whatever think this is a different computer? or any other suggestions any of you might have?
    thanks in advance,
    ttoki

    Does your landlady know that you're tapping into her unsecured wireless internet service? :rolleyes:

    actually it's secure and i do have permission to use it
    it's part of what i pay
    the problem is you can be online for only so long then you get limited or no connectivity
    by the way i tried the winsockXPfix yesterday when i lost connectivity and it didn't work... any other suggestions?

    Check the area where your computer is at. You may be getting interference from a cordless phone or microwave or TV or some other device in your home. You may try moving it to a different location anyway, especially if it's a laptop and can be moved around easily.

    Click Start - Run, type in NETSH WINSOCK RESET (exactly as you see it with a single space between each word), then click OK. A window will appear briefly, then disappear. Restart your computer afterwards. See if that helps.
