Yes sir, when I disconnected and attempted reconnecting to the wireless
connection I always have since we've had this internet 3years ago, it brings
up a screen that shows it connecting however a message appears saying
"Connection taking longer than usual" and after a bit longer it connects
with the limited connectivity sign, however when I DO check the network im
connectd to it does for some odd reason say public, here is exactly what it
call the network i connect to:
"Unidentified Network(public network)"
Thanks for replying btw so far this is the farthest i've gotten with anyone
I'd much appreciate more help
