  1. Check TCP/IP Properties.

    Start, Connect To, Connection, Properties, Scroll Down TCP/IP and highlight, click Properties and check that Obtain DNS and IP address automatically are enabled.


    Also try turning off wireless security in the router temporarily-- might help isolate the cause.


    Most likely though is poor wireless reception. Try raising the router above furniture level, experiment with different channels.
