hey there im running vista home premium on a dell xps decktop and ive been running into the following problem
when i sit at my desktop my wireless connection is apparently strong, in that when viewed on my windows wireless management software i have excellent connection. However, as the title says, when i use the internet in anyway my connection brakes, this happens when google chrome, internet explorer, or any of my online games are used.
at first i thought it was a hardware problem however i've verified with my notebook (the comp im on now) that it is not my wireless modem. i also replaced my wireless adapter on the xps as i have a buddy at the comp store who replaced it for free
. i've checked that my drivers are all up to date and eventually arrived at the idea of a virus. ive ran malwarebytes, microsoft security essentials, and the windows malware detector all in safe mode and normal mode and still have come up with nothing. i'm kind of at a dead end here and would like yo here what you have to say.
