My internet router is a Zone Alarm Z100G secure wireless router, with a TRENDnet USB wireless adapter. I used to use Ethernet, untill a lightning strike fried my ethernet port. Getting a USB wireless adapter was a lot cheaper than a USB ethernet port, so I went with that. After I started using wireless, my internet would crash fairly regularly if I was using a lot of bandwidth (usually when I am downloading large files). Whenever this happens, I right-click the wireless network connection icon and hit repair. this always works. the odd thing is that I can cancel the repair mid way, and yet even though the window says that my internet connection is disabled, the repair continues. Then, in an hour or so, it crashes again.
Also, whenever I enter my IP address into my internet address bar, it brings me to either A.) a page that says "Safari can’t open the page “http://192.168.10.38/” because the server where this page is located isn’t responding" or B.) a search page (IE7) instead of taking me to my router settings.
Are these two things related? anyone have any suggestions?
