My router has been working fine up until now. well Im pretty sure my problem is my router.
I can wire my internet to my laptop no prob but when I hook it up to the router (we have a PS3 and Wii to hook up wirelessly) it says its connected but I can't go to any websites. Not sure what the problem is...if anyone can help that would be great. Thinking of getting a new router...this one is a few years old....any suggestions?

From the laptop, if you have XP click Start -> click Run -> type CMD and hit enter. If in Vista, click Start in the search type CMD, in the list right click it and Run as Admin

In the black box that pops up, type ping www.google.com and hit enter. Look for the line, Packets Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0. That is what you should see. If you see Sent = 4, Recved = 0, Lost = 4, type ping (a google IP address), hit enter and you are looking for 4, 4, 0. If you see something else on that post it please.

You say you can "wire it to the internet", does that mean connect it directly to the modem? Have you unplugged the modem and router for a few mins then plugged them back in?

Hope this helps thumbup.gif
