Hello,
I've been having problems with my wireless internet lately. I've had the same router since July of 09 and it was working great. The router itself is downstairs, and I am upstairs but I never had trouble with it until about a week ago. I have a router/modem provided by the cable provider. It's a netgear. So here is my problem: Recently my laptop connects wirelessly, but I cannot access the internet. My signal strength is "excellent" 5 bars, but my mbps sometimes drops to 18 (which it never did before). At first I just turned my router on and off thinking that would solve the problem. But then much to my dismay, after trying this 3 times over 3 days it didn't work. Thinking this was a router problem still, i went on my sister's laptop one day and it worked fine. My other computer downstairs works fine, but that is wired. When I wire my laptop it works fine too but i cant run a line up to my room...

so i've looked online and tried about a billion things. I've un-installed the drivers, updated the drivers on the intel website (i have an HP Pavilion dv4269us) I did delete some things the other day off my programs that i didn't need but i dont think i deleted anything important. I was now thinking my network adapter is bad BUT at school my wireless internet works.

when i run Ipconfig this comes up

I also wanted to add that my computer is inconsistent on what wireless networks it detects. One second I 6 networks on my list and the next it only detects 1. I'm wondering if my wireless adapter or my wireless antennas might be going bad but i have no idea how to test that... Now my internet at school is also starting to act funny (it has fallen to 18 mbps) and is timing out suddenly.
