Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So, this is not what I wanted my first original thread to be about, but what can you do.
First some background info: I live in a neighbourhood that relativly newly built, as a result all the houses are less than 2 years old. As part of this all the houses got installed broadband internet, telephone and TV in the same switching box. My family(mom,me and stepdad) decided to set up the internet in a wireless form. The wireless system was secured, needing an acsess code to hook up. There are several similar systems withing a 100 meter area.
On friday the company had a technical problem affecting all of its customers. I was unaware of this. The problem was fixed later that day. My problem was that since then I can't use the home wireless system, despite having good signal strenght. My parents PC can still use the Internet without problem. I See the system and I get good signal strenght from it, but no dice
The system a first would say: Looking for network adress.
It would do that for 2-3 minutes and then say:Little or no connection
I thought I had solved it when I figured out I may have entered the wrong passcode and tried a different one. But now it says connected with good signal strenght and still I can't get online(no websites will open)
Strangly enough I can use another unsecured system in my street(bad taste I know). I have tried unplugging the router, run an antivirus on my PC. Deactivating/reactivating my card. clicking the repair function on wireless menu. Different variants of the passcode. Nothing works!
We did have a similar problem earlier, but that turned out to be the router malfunctioning and solved itself when we switched to the current one. And in that case it the router stopped transmitting, preventing us from picking it up at all. it also affected both computers in the house. This time like I said its only my computer.
Some advice on WIFI would be a great help.
