I earlier had a question and it lead to another. so lest get a fresh start. I have a Acer laptop with windows vista and a Netgear wireless router. I have a desktop connected to the router wired and it works good. I've had this setup about 1 1/2 years working good on both computers. Now I can't get on internet with the laptop. I took it to a wifi and can't get on internet. I connected it wired to my home router and can't get on internet. I can get on my local network. I know it is on local network not only because it says so but I used laptop to access files from the desktop.At times it shows internet connection but when I try to get on line it looses internet and says can't find page but still has local connection. Any ideas how a 70 year old computer dummy might solve this? L.D.
