Well. . . This has been two years of one problem after another since I got my GAteway Tablet PC from Best Buy. The worst.
Since the last time I had to turn it in for weeks for one serious problem or another, I have not been able to connect to the internet outside my house. Not at Starbucks, nor my cousin's house, or anywhere in New Jersey, not on the train, in the library or sitting in front of Free Wi-Fi Central (no such place).
I search for a signal, same as always and connect as usual. The computer says I am connected, usually with an excellent signal. But I can never get a page to load. EVER. No server can ever be found, no google can be had.
I do not have the same problem in my house. I can get on, same as always. But as soon as I try to connect to my neighbors signal, I can not get online. Its like the thing is configured to my router only and will not work with anyone else's signal. This started after I had my computer 'fixed' by Best Buy.
Any ideas? Is it locked to my network somehow? Should I try to figure out a way to make Best Buy & Gateway go out of business?
