So I've had a 'comedy' of errors this passed month and their not stopping now. First off I was bringing my laptop down to my Dad's, he needed something with HDMI while he ordered a replacement for his broken laptop/ notebook. Well I bring it down there and the fan's broken. I was on it just the day before :/ well these things happen and I got it fixed. Than just as I recieved this my wireless adapter crapped out on me BUT my fixed laptop worked fine (though they assembled the keyboard wrong, it's goin back soon as I get this fixed). So that's the history, here's the problem I ordered a new wireless adaptor (two of them... I needed a second one anyway) and now it won't work for me either! The first one worked for an hour or so (slowly but still) but sooner or later it just quit and won't connect, though it sees the connection just fine. The second adapter can connect... but only for a second than it shuts off. I tried both on 3 computers all the same thing (except for the working for a few hours part... that just happened once). First computer is my desktop, second is my mom's, third is my laptop (with wifi disabled to turn off my internal wireless card ofc it doesn't actually disable wifi... I got all the same icons and stuff as with the desktops). So yeah! the laptop works with it's internal card, but not with these adaptors, the desktops don't get on the internet at all! I'm pretty sure the adaptors work, they find the signal ok... what could be my problem? Modem doesn't need to be reset, it works fine on my laptop! (running through the router, not directly connected just fyi) any ideas?
