Does / is anyone aware of any update issues within the last 7-10 days that have adverse effects on wireless connectivity.
I run a dual boot with win 7 or vista and ubuntu 11.10.
Wireless modem is indicating no problems but have lost connectivity on 2 desktops and a laptop.
Thanks - just need to check on any known problems before remaking connections.

Call your ISP. updates have had no effect on wifi That I have seen or heard.

Yep, and others would have felt it.
How long has this problem been going on? Could your upstairs neighbor just be doing a lot of microwaving?
Try speedtest.net and pingtest.net if you can get online at all.

If you have a spare ethernet cable (hope you do), try plugging one of the computers directly into the router. This would show you whether it's actually a wireless problem.

I had an old linksys b wireless router - swapped it out and it is up and running.
It doesn't even have wep enabled but wants a password and user name to log in.
I dont think i ever created one on it - maybe factory password and user
