Feel free to redirect me if this is not the right place to start. I am about ready to toss everything (and it is all new)
Here is the info:
System components: MSI U123 Netbook -wireless ready- purchased in Nov '09
HPC photosmart All in One Wireless - new in Dec '09
Cisco Valet router
Op system Win XP
In January, I had the netbook and printer working beautifully. At some point I began having connection problems. After hours of time with MSI, Comcast and Linksys tecs, I still can't get stay connected to the internet for longer than a half hour if that. Finally, a friend said that it sounded like a router - my previous Linksys was 4 years old, so 3 weeks ago, I bought the Cisco.
I have installed and uninstalled this stuff at least 4 times and initially thought the new router did the trick. I get excellent connection but cannot get past an IP address of 192.whatever.
Everything works using cables: that is how I am working right now. Also, I have run virus and spyware sacns that always come up clean. But I live in a small space in an old apartment where the electric outlets are on one side of the room and the cable on the other, so I trip on cords all day if I can't work wireless.
Thank you in advance. I feel so close to getting this working.
