A friend sent me this email   Thought I'd see if anyone might know some things to check?


Any ideas here:  I took my moms laptop home to do some updates etc.  it's connected at her house the same as mine are, wireless modem.  When I got it home, I could not get it to connect to my service.  I took it back to her house then couldn't get it to connect back there!

Don't know what I did.  It recognizes and reads the modems fine, good signal strength with the modem but will not connect to internet.  I've entered, reentered etc the ssd, that's not it.  It will more or less connect to the modem but will sit there and state "verifying ip address" which it never does and therefore never gets internet...    I can't figure it out.    Worked fine before I brought it home and tried to connect to mine, now it's screwed.   thoughts?

In my experience, that's been a sign of too much interference.  You can make the initial connection but the interference keeps scrambling the data so it never finishes.  One option is to change the channel in the wireless router.

I use a program called Wireless Netview to see how many other wireless routers are in the neighborhood and which channels they are using.  http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/wireless_network_view.html

Configure it with a static ip and let us know what happens.

- Also try, disabling, enabling the wireless interface.
- Forgetting or deleting the SSID from the computer
- Doublecheck the type of encryption WPA/WPA2, ect.

Try removing the wireless network profiles from her laptop, to be sure that nothing is goofed up. Then try reconnecting at each location. Do you get any errors?
