Ok, so I'm having some difficulties with our connection.
The wireless computer has been giving errors off and on, but repairing it has always got it back up and running. However, tonight I'm having problems with MY desktop connecting, and it's WIRED to the router. I've never had any difficulties with it before.
However, for the last day or so several of my programs (AIM, MSN Messenger, xfire) would just randomly be disconnected and reconnect, and tonight I lost my connection completely. Repairing the network didn't work because it couldn't refresh the IP address. So I rebooted, viewed my network connections, it said I was connected, couldn't get anything online working, though. So I repaired it with the same success as before. So then I reset the cable modem and the router and rebooted again, and now I'm online.
Why would I be having difficulties with my wire desktop? Is this signs that our old Linksys router is going out? Should I just go ahead and buy a new one? I'm not very fond of it anyways, so I want to do that, but if that's not the problem I want to know what IS the problem.
