I use wireless internet and it's been acting up a lot lately. I'll be lucky if I can finish this post.

It says it's connected, sometimes even has an "excellent" connection. yet, the internet won't work. no mozilla, no instant messenger, nothing. sometimes it works when i first turn on the computer. it's working now because i spent a lot of time disconnecting and reconnecting.

please tell me it's not my wireless card and that it will be easy and low cost to fix.

it's an XP gateway lap top.

THere could be a number of issues at hand.

1) What is the distance between your laptop and the router? Are they on the same floor?
2) Do you have any other wireless apparatus in the vincinnety of your laptop?
3) Please do the following :
START RUN type cmd After the prompt in the blackbox do the following :
type ping www.google.com ( mind the bracket between ping and www)
and post the result.
4) Which firewall do you have?
5) XP what SP2?
