Just started using this laptop: I'll have my daughter describe the problem with the hope that you can help.
Hi, So we are having a little trouble with the internet connection of our Windows Vista computer... I can connect to our private network but it doesn't always mean I am online. For completely random reasons it will no longer be able to go online. It will say that it is connected and the signal strength is excellent but in the network and sharing center only the computer and the house will be coloured. I can usually get it to go back online if I disconnect and reconnect (from the internet) and/or disable then re-enable the network (under network connection status). Sometimes restarting the computer will get it to reconnect but not always. I will go in circles trying these different options until it connects, sometimes it will reconnect after a couple times and sometimes it takes quite a bit of alternating between the two things. I have tried everything I could find online so it would be wonderful if you guys had anything that might fix it or any reason that it might be doing it.
Thanks in advance for any help
