Hi guys,

I'm having some difficulty with my home wireless internet connection and was hoping someone could help. My wife and I live alone and have not had any problems with both of us connecting to the internet wirelessly at the same time. Now we have a family member visiting for the next month, and as of her showing up and configuring her computer to access our home network, we can only have 2 people connected to the internet at the same time. The third person is able to connect to the network, but gets a message similar to "you are connected to the access point, but the internet cannot be found".

How do I make it so that all three people can access the internet at the same time?

Additional info:

The Linksys product you refered to there is a wireless notebook card... Have you made sure that the problem is definetly with the router not the card? For instance can he/she connect to the network and browse the internet if one of your other computers are off of the network?
