    We are using windows xp. My computer is directly hooked to cable and has the modem Comcast gave us and we are using a Linksys broadband router.
    We have had minimal problems until now. The wireless computer has had a very low signal a couple of times but when we try to access the home page it acts wierd and then there is no signal. Does it have anything to do with needing a different or new IP address? HELP
