    Plug a cable into network adaptor "Local Area Connection"??


    Hi, i have a problem with my internet connection...

    Basically i have been trying to connect to wireless internet my Mother-In-Laws house where i am currently staying, when it automatically connects it all looks fine until you try to access any website and the whole connection just goes down and i don't understand why?! When it goes off it will immediately try to re-connect, aquire ip address and then connect with and then disconnect again and just does this in circles.

    In the diagnostics, if i try to repair, it says there might be a problem with one or more network adaptors on this computer and then tells me to plug a cable into the network adaptor "local area connection" I'm not exactly hot with computers and don't understand what this means at all lol

    On the computer i am on now, which is the main one in the house, the connection
    is fine and doesn't break up.

    Someone please help cos i'm going insane

    Thanks!!

    You need to find a newsgroups with the name "windows" in it.

    This is a DOTNET newsgroup, where developers (programmers) ask questions
    about the DotNet framework.

    You've indeed gone insane if you think that this newsgroup has anything to
    do with your problem. Please find a newsgroup that contains maybe
    "windows", or "wireless" or "networking" in its name.

    Good Luck, Bob
