My home has wireless internet..we have on router and one modem.
One computer is plugged directly into the router and the other upstairs is wireless.
As of recently the comp upstairs isn't getting internet even though the routers program ( I have Trend Net Router) shows a very good signal strength but the other icon (looks like two little computers) always shows that it is trying to connect...it uses some term I cannot recall.
The computer which is plugged directly to the router still has a connection but cuts out at times then comes back.
I am thinking it could be the modem but now that I am researching I wonder if it is the router.
Both are about two or so years old..so could it be the router?
Edited: I think it really IS the router. I had originally thought it was the modem; with all the wires we have running about I thought one computer was plugged to the modem when I realized I misidentified it. It is the cable connecting the modem and router and the computer is plugged into the router.
Still..why would the comp that is plugged into the router still get internet while the other doesn't?
I shall look into the matter further.
