Ok I'm back! Sorry for the late responce but I couldn't get back on this webpage the whole afternoon yesterday. Dunno why...ALL the other webpages opened normally, save this one. Ok so I woke up today and my net was dead again, so was really a deppresing site to see...Even though my girlfriend's laptop was turned off the whole night (however i don't know when my comp froze, because she came to bed a little later..). Yesterday I turned off the bonjour and the computer browser services (disabled them) and still this problem persists. Today my laptop couldn't even connect to the internet anymore (via the wire), so I had to connect via my wireless router to get access to internet. If I troubleshoot the wired connection it just says that I have problems with my broadband modem and should restart it (however my gf's laptop has normal internet connection so how could it be the modem....). So I still don't quite get the router "interference" part...if my linksys router is plugged in the modem's internet outlet #1 and has a 192.168.0.1 setting and the other is plugged in my modem's outlet #2 with it's ip set to 192.168.1.1 (the other one has no wireless options), they can still interfere with one another? What could be the next steps for me to try cuz i'm really quite out of ideas here? Thank you for your replies/ideas!
