Internet connected but not sending packets

  jamesp 15:19 13 Jul 2008

I have a wireless receiver that normally works fine for our wifi. But suddenly it's not working.

It says it's connected to the internet, but it won't let me go on anything. The packets sent/ received is something low like 28/9.

I've tried to uninstall the software so I can reinstall it for lack of knowing what else to do. But the installer freezes up every time I try and do it.

Can anyone help me out with this? Thanks

Are you with VIRGIN?

Yes, could that be somethng to do with it?

Forgot to add BTW I'm using a Belkin N1 Wireless Desktop card, if that helps any.

VIRGIN had a few problems in my area yesterday and still today.My internet would not connect through my Netgear Router.

Ending up phoning the VIRGIN tech dept.He said there was a problem with VIRGIN accepting my Routers MAC address?He could not understand what had gone wrong their end.

To address the prob,I now use the PC's MAC address,this was the only way to connect to the net.

Might be coincidence,but you never know.

If you don't receive any help from the forum members,give them a call.

Hope this helps.

Thanks. The internet seems to be working on everyone else's computers, though, that are running from the same router. I think it could be a problem with the receiver because it used to belong to my brother and he's just told me it happened to him sometimes.
