I was using the internet connection and then it suddenly died. I am using a PC connected to a router and the router is providing wireless to my laptop. The physical connections are fine and the LAN connection box is showing 'limited or no connectiviity' and the speed 1.o GPS rather than the connected 100 mbs. No viruses present and turning firewall off makes no difference. I am now wondering (although would no know) if it is a hardware fault like the Ethernet card. Is there a hardware fault detector I can download or any other suggestions?
No excalamation marks in device manager and have managed to turn off the wireless on the laptop and made a physical connection to the router which worked. Have turned off the PC and left for 2 mins but no luck The only excamation mark is on the connection icon on the taskbar. I tried to repair the connection and got - couldn't complete -'renewing ip address'??
i've been looking at the o2 website to try to find out what router it is and i'm none the wiser.if you set it up yourself using their cd then reset the router and set it up again from scratch.unless anyone is with o2 and knows which router it is it's like the blind leading the blind
