The set up in our house is that the main computer is attached to router by ethernet cable. We then have various laptops, ipods, phones that can connect via wireless to the router.

We have two problems at the moment, firstly one laptop will not connect via wireless any more. When I run the troubleshooter I get the following errors - Problem with wireless adapter or access point, wireless network connection doesn't have a valid ip configuration and a network cable is not properly plugged in or may be broken.

I don't know much about network and wireless connections so don't know whether it is a fault on that particular laptop or a problem with the router.

When I open the network and sharing centre in the diagram there is a cross between the network icon and the internet icon.

The second problem is that the wireless connections on laptops, ipods etc drop out every now and again and the only way round that is to reset the router.

Help :)
