Internet Connection Problem

  babybell 19:10 19 Apr 10

Lost internet connection on Thursday, green light on my netgear wireless router turned red and no amount of restarts helped. Today, I used IE to tune into the router and re-enter my username and password from within it and success, the internet light went green. My virgin wireless software shows that I have a strong signal strength, but still says there is no internet connection and when trying to load my homepage, I still get "page cannot be displayed" Norton won't update either. Running windows XP on HP G60

Any help guys? Is winsockfix the answer?

Will it connect by cable?

Switch Norton Off and see if it will connect.

To be honest I haven't tried that option yet. I've download winsockfix at the parents house so I'll go home and try hard cable and then winsockfix to see how I get on.

I connected the router via cable and nothing happened. I re-enter my username and password and restarted the router and it connected to the internet. I then removed the cable and it continued to work over the wireless. Not sure what will happen when I turn it off and on again, but its working.........for now!

Thanks for your help
