Problem: At home we have 1 router and a modem for internet. On my laptop (Sony Vaio VPCF22M1E) I can access internet only when connected to the router (if I connect to the modem, it says that I'm connected but doesn't load any pages, and it's not a signal problem). On my tablet, only connecting to the modem works... Why??? this makes no sense to me, an ignorant gamer-but-not like me that doesn't know much about this. With my old laptop (Gateway) both worked, but there was alot of packet loss when I was connecting to the router causing immense lag in FPS games. With this computer, packet loss isn't as bad, but I would still like to have a stable connection (Made a thread in internal hardware for a similar problem.)

I assume you are connecting by WiFi, but you did not specifically say. Is my assumption correct?

What model of modem and router?

Assuming your are using WiFi, are you using encryption for the WiFi network? If so, which version? WEP, WPA, WPA2? Also, have you tried turning off the encryption TEMPORARILY to see if that helps?
