At least give people here a fighting chance to help you!

What EXACTLY are you doing, what EXACTLY is the operating system doing, and
what are the ERROR messages that you get?

I apologize. I will sign onto messenger, try to open a web page, and then if
i attempt to move to the next page, for example, the wireless will suddenly
go completely out or will say "Connected with limited access". Then I will
click on the icon near the clock that indicates connectivity and click on
network and sharing center. There i will click on "View status" and then on
"Diagnose". The message then reads "Your modem or router cannot be found"
and lists a few options, one of which is to disconnect the router and reset
it, another is to find IP addresses, and the last is usually to reset the
network adapter. I then click on the last option, it will either read "no
problem was found" or it will read "problem has been resolved", either way i
am again able to connect, sometimes for the rest of the session, all too
often for another 3 to five minutes. The computer remains plugged into a
power source for the duration, and the disconnection is not due to moving
either the router or the computer.

In "network and sharing center" i have seen messages about making sure that
my firewall settings match the suggested settings, but i find that if i have
a firewall turned on AT ALL, the computer simply will not connect. I do not
have an antivirus program installed, but i do not download things, so I
shouldn't have a virus. Is that all the info you need?

What you need to do

You should look into the following:

Since your access is wireless, make sure that you don't have a 2.4GHz
wireless base station or handset near your computer. If you do and you
can't move it, there are adjustments you can make to the channel that your
wireless adapter listens to. In the config of the wireless card, if you are
on Channel 2, adjust to Channel 4 or 7. It might not be listed as channel,
but by Mhz. Adjust to another frequency and see if that helps. I had the
same issues and when I made those adjustments, everything worked out fine.

If those don't work, you could have a faulty NIC card. If that isn't the
problem, then you could possibly have a virus!

It should be one of the above.

Of course you are downloading from the internet. When you visit a web site
you are downloading all the code for that page which can contain Trojans,
tracking cookies, active X scripts and even a virus.
