I have a Netgear WG111v3 adapter, a Netgear Wireless N-300 router and a Optus 2203C Modem and I have been unable to connect to the internet from my Computer in my room. We have 3 computers, one that is directly connected to the internet and two that are using wireless Netgear Adapters. On Tuesday evening i could not conect to the internet from my room, when i had perfect connection in the morning and for months before. But it wasn't that it just won't connect to the internet, it won't connect to the router. While it knew the network was there, it dosen't connect to the Router at all. On the other computers (which are both closer to the router) there is perfect connectivity. Also, on my PSP and Ipod the internet is fine even when used futher from the router than all the computers. I thought it might be my Adapter, but when I used the other more powerful one it still had the same problem. I restarted and Reinstalled the program twice and there is still no change. Recently, Windows reset my security system for some reason, but this was well before the Adapter stopped connecting. Also, i have had 8 blue screens of death late last month, 5 on one day. I don't know if there is any connection, but if there is please tell me a way to fix it. It is defintly my computer, because it works on all the other ones. Thanks for your help!
