Loss of Internet Connectivity

I have a Netgear WPN824 v2 wireless router. I have my desktop hardwired to it and a netbook, PS3, and occasionally an HTC Hero mobile device that I connect to it using wireless. All of the sudden we have been losing connectivity. It sometimes comes back immediately but sometimes it takes several minutes. I have even gotten some error messages saying a computer is already using that I.P. address. This router has worked fine with the above mentioned set-up, it just all of the suddent starting messing up.

Any thoughts?

Thank-you!

  1. Let me get a new router and get back with you. In a fit of anger I smashed the router....made me feel better. In the mean time, here is the ipconf info. I wasn't 100% sure what you were looking for, I am an amateur here. Thanks so much for the reply!
