    I need some help with my laptops internet connection. It's an older Dell Inspiron with an external Linksys wireless-g usb adapter which connects to my desktop. A few days ago all of a sudden I could't logon to my homepage at all (SBC Yahoo DSL). After several attempts to trouble shoot my connection it didn't get much better. FYI the desktop that the laptop is connected to with the Linksys adapter works just fine. I have uninstalled the software for Yahoo and am trying to use Firefox to get on the web which I can now do but the connection is very very slow still. In the connection section of the control panel it has a dial up connection selected as the default I'm not sure if that is correct of not. I'm not sure what to do now. Any help or info would be very much apreciated, as you can tell by my post I'm not very "computer savy".

    Thaks for any help.
