    Or when that doesn't work, just right click your internet icon, then click "disconnect" and then connect again. It always works for me.

    this is the second time it's happened to me, and the first time i just rebooted it, and it went back to normal, but not anymore.

    i think i may have to call the company for some advice

    this happens to me 80% of the time. you have to right click on your wireless icon and click "diagnose and repair" and then it will give you 3 options. choose "renew IP address" and it will fix the issue

    Yea that's what I usually do when that problem arises for me.

    If that doesn't fix it I usually disconnect the power to the modem and router for a minute or so, then hook everything back up. Should work after that. If not make sure you're provider isn't doing maintenance to the service at that time.
