Internet troubles.. - June 28th 2009, 05:24 PM

Hey!

Alright I have been having issues with my wireless connection.

Basically my laptops can't access my wireless network. They connect, say that the connection is excellent but when I try to open a web page it won't work. I get the "This web page is not available". So I'm guessing it has something to do with the firewall on my desktop which is blocking wireless connections.. Thing is, I don't know how to fix this problem.

A couple of days ago I had a virus on my computer and to get rid of it I had to install all of these antimalware programs and run a bunch of scans. Do you think that could have messed it up? I have not been able to connect since then.

Anyways, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

That probably would have been it.
I'm guessing one of your firewalls are blocking essential processes.
Can you tell me exactly what programs were installed? It will help me get a better idea of stuff =)

Ah, I'm thinking that as part of what it does, Advanced System Care might be your culpurit. Double check it's internet optimisation settings, though if you don't understand what all the knobs and dials mean, just tell it revert it to default and hopefully that should fix whatever change was made to it that stopped your internet working.

Thanks. I fixed it. I just ended up removing the majority of the programs and reconfiguring the wireless.
Thanks Janos!

Since the problem has been solved, I'll close this now.


I'd sing you a song, but I'm feeling quite off
in my heart; it's occupied,

and now's not the time.
