i have already tried the second part of that and i dont think it is a firewall problem as i have changed the settings on that. i dont know how to do that first part though changing the router settings. thanks anyway.

You will need to log into the router ..... you must use an ethernet cable initially to setup the router, so plug in your laptop via ethernet cable until you have the router configured. Then log in via web address usually 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.2.1 to cinfigure it.

what router are you using?

I had the same problem, but with a different router.
It appears that the signal from my cordless phone was interfering. Perhaps you have some wireless communication devices; they are quite prevalent these days.
Can you change the channel on your router?
