Can you be a bit more specific about what your 3 PCs are connected to? Make and model number please.
What internet connection do you have? Cable,DSL or something else? Is the wireless router an all-in -one device or is there a seperate modem?
Do you know the IP address of your router? If so run a ping test (don't ask me how to do this on a Mac!) - on a Windows PC open a command prompt window by typing "cmd" in the Start>Run box.
Assume your remote device has the address 192.168.0.111 then a possible ping command would be:ping -l 256 -w 5 192.168.0.111
(Note the "-l" is minus lower case L)
You will see results popping up on the screen. When they stop you will see the statistics gathered showing the % packet loss and the time it took for packets to return.
If no packets were lost you are 'talking' to your router Ok.
Then type:ping www.google.com
This sound like some kind of firewall issue or connection issue to your ISP. Are there any changes you are aware of?
