Hey guys, I have just had a strange situation happen to me while surfing the net. I was connected to a secure wireless connection whose name was "FLOWER". It was secured with a password. Suddenly, my computer had a popup message that said I was connected to a new IP, and the network name changed to Flower 2. At this point I had a full connection strength, but NO internet access. Something is strange here. If I connect directly to my router via cable, it works fine and the network ID is still original. As soon as I go wireless that other network is defaulted and I can't get access. I am at the end of my capabilities here.. Does anyone have any advice? THANKS in advance.

Ok that's new lol.

Need a little info:

What version of Windows?

Make, Model and revision of router? Can find this normally on the bottom of router on a tag

Make and model of wireless card? If external there will be a tag on it. If internal - hold the Windows key and type the Pause/Break key, click Hardware tab (or Device manager will be listed on the left), click Device Manager button and click the + beside Network Adapters. It will be listed there.

Do you use the software that is associated with the wireless card?

Hope this helps thumbup.gif
