Thank you for responding back. I wish more folks can. I want to give this person back their Notebook... This person doesn't understand the time and my afford, as well as to take more time out and reach out to folks like you all online.
What happen, this person's Norton subscription ran out, so I installed AVG Interest Security. I do not recall whether I had an active web site beforehand. I system restored back to before I installed, but still nothing. This makes me think, has this new Gateway been online....
After I installed AVG, the net would not work, regardless if I was connected to any Hotspot-wireless.
This person was using a router, but I connected to my building's free wifi instead.
Everything checks out as for as the 'Wireless Connection' on Vista Home.
The only thing I cannot figure out is why "Activity is receiving much more than it's sending".
I receive the typical 'this page cannot be displayed" in IE. and Firefox "connection interrupted".
The IP address doesn't seem like it's been assigned by the Wireless Adapter.

Actually over the network, the sent packets sometimes get FRAGMENTED. that is why, received number of packets is more than number of sent packets.. This is the normal and correct condition of a network connection
