I dont even know where to start. A few weeks ago a variety of problems started after someone started fooling around with my computer. I think they were trying to make a static ip or something. I dont know if it worked.
I began having problems with my internet connection. I reset my modem and router but still had problems. I still am unable to access the Belkin page for my settings. 192.168.2.1 or 2.2 doesnt work. So if you can help wih that, I'd appreciate it.
Yesterday morning when I booted up a balloon popped up saying another network was available. I dont remember what it was, but it seemed legitimate, like Gateway Network or Microsoft Network or something. I'd never seen anything like it before. Anyway, I right clicked, but didnt select the option. I was able to work online for awhile then suddenly I lost all network connections. AOL, local, everything. I couldnt get back online for anything. Today, upon reboot I was able to get online for maybe 5 minutes. I still wasnt able to connect to Belkin, but was temporarily able to access my neighbors linksys. I can do that everytime I reboot, but I can never access my Belkin. The computer wired to the router still works.
Then in the middle of all this, I got one of those blue screens telling me I may need to turn of caching or shadowing in the BIOS. Of ocurse no one in the word can tell me how to do that. When I hit the F key on restart, it says setting are loading, but never loads.
When I go into Intel, I cant find a specific problem. It just says that it cant connect to Belkin. I havent installed any new drivers or anything lately. There were a couple of downloads. Spybot found some ICQ keystroke monitor that wasnt there a few weeks ago. I was deleted.
I dont know which, if any of these is the problem. I guess they are all problems. Typing this letter is the longest I've been able to stay online, but I'm still cant access my own router. I dont know what to do or why this is happening.
