the only way to get a good conection is to reset my router just about every time i get on the computer. even then its not that good or fails to get the concetion to a reasonable speed. the main problem is that the router is over at my grandpas brothers home and i dont want to go into there home when ever i want to reset the router. the problem seems to be some thing with the IP address. manny times it will tell me the signal streangth is good or what ever but say limited or no connectivity. i have no idea. my internet provider says nothing wrong on there side. my grandpa uses an internet signal amplifier the router is no more then 30 or so feet away. the internet is secured. i am not so computer savey. it appears to be something with the DHCP

Some things you can try here, listed in the order you should try them.

  1. For wireless connections, remove all the stored wireless profiles and search for networks. You'll have to enter the encryption key again, which is sometimes the issue for connection problems.
  2. For wireless connections, change the channel on the router, I like channels 1, 6, and 11 in the US.
  3. For wireless connections, try moving either the wireless router/AP or the wireless computer. Even a couple of feet will sometimes make a big difference.
  4. Update the network drivers (wired and wireless) on your computer to the latest available.
  5. Update the firmware to the latest version available on the manufacturer's site.
  6. Reset the router to factory defaults and reconfigure.

Many times these measures will resolve a lot of intermittent issues.
