I installed a wireless router a week or so ago. Everything seemed to be fine for a few days. But I noticed music downloads were slower. The last couple of days I'm having trouble getting on the internet. I can prompt Windows to repair the connection and I've gotten 2 different causes.
First, Windows detected a problem with the Winsock provider catalog, would I like Windows to reset the catalog to default?
Second, it said internet connection has been restored for HTTP:// and HTTPS:// web pages but not for FTP. This, it says, can be fixed by adjusting the firewall settings. My firewall is zone alarm free and doesn't seem to have any tweaks like that.
Today I have tried to update a couple of programs including my firewall and the downloads get to a certain point right in the middle of the download and just stop. They still show they are downloading but they aren't so I just close them up.
I can't find the router in the device manager, and I don't have a connection icon either.
I assume this has got to be a router problem or a port problem or something but I'm obviously a green horn.Any help would be appreciated.
