Can anyone help?
I have a netgear router and i am with Virgin on wi fi but am sick and fed up with not being able to get online when i want to. more often than not i get the above messages and have to disconect from myself to reconnect to myself (my netgear setup that is)
I telephoned Virgin and followed their instructions but that didn't work-not helpfull at all.
I keep switching the router off and waiting and re-setting it too, tried eveyting i know of so if you know better pelase tell me.
Thanks in advance

If connected by cable have you tried.
Tools.Internet Options.Connections.Make sure never dial a connection is dotted.Then Lan settings. And make sure automatically detect settings is ticked.Ok.Apply.Ok

That is if you are using Internet Explorer.

TRy changing the wireless channel it may be interference from a neighbor on the same channel causing the drop outs.

Also 2.4ghz home wireless phones cause a problem
