    Ok here's the problem: I have a wireless network giving internet to two other computers. Computer A is connected to the wireless router. Computers B & C receive their internet from the router wirelessly. Computer A recently stopped receiving internet connections, but Computers B & C still get their usual internet signals. I have tried changing every setting that I know of to get the internet working.

    Oh by the way, I'm using Computer B right now!

    Maybe trying by running everything off the default settings off your router and see if that brings back the net.

    Note that this may make u loose your connection all togther.

    Where do you find the default settings? We are using 1184 Dell Wireless Broadband Router.

    uninstall computer a's wireless net card & restart windows so it can load driver. ran into that problem with a customer's pc wired card, appears to be alright but not connecting. uninstalled & restarted got computer back on the net.

    It's not a wireless card in computer A, it's an Ethernet card... only the other two have wireless cards. It's a new computer and I don't dare mess with it. The internet is going in and out so I have a little bit here and there, its not completely dead.

    could be a driver issue, could be a bad cable, could be netcard is dying or could be port in router is dying.
