Help with a wireless connection

niknaks, Apr 19, 9:54pm
Not sure where to start.

My laptop is telling me I have an internet connection and its connected but I cant connect at all neither will my ipad, iphones etc.

I have tried turning it all off and back on again but nothing. Sometimes i can log on to trade me but cant get past the first page.

Could this be a router or modem problem.

How do i find out which without spending money replacing both and am I able to contact telecom and ask them to check that i do have a broadband signal there!

I would appreciate anyones help.

Thanks in advance.

Sounds like internet issue at the modem, have you restarted the modem/router etc. Power off for 5minutes, and switch everything on again including laptop

I have just had this issue. my laptop did an update wednesday and it stopped me from being able to connect to internet for any longer then 5 minutes. I did a system restore and now everything is fine. i being posting on here to under need a computer tech.(help)

But as you cant connect with other devices your modem probably needs to be reconfigured
