internet connection problem

My sisters computer connects to the internet then cuts off straight away. I have tried her computer on my network adapter and works fine. I have tried my computer at her house and it works no problem. Can anyone suggest what to try next please? Thanks

Rather more information is required to try and pinpoint the problem...:-)

what information do u need?

Am I right in thinking that this is a wireless connection, you've took your USB wireless adapter round to try and that works and you've also tried your computer on her connection? If so, it could be a problem with her network adapter. Try her adapter at your house on your connection and if it cuts off then, there's your problem. ;-) Also, if you can get her network adapter to stay online long enough, check the signal strength.

what is working - her computer on my wireless connection. My computer on her modem
what is not working - her computer through her modem.
hope this makes sense.
