Always a bad connection
« on: July 14, 2011, 09:03:46 AM »

Every time I get on the computer, I can't use the internet. It shows I'm connected to D-Link, but Firefox gives me error messages to check my internet connection. I have to disconnect and reconnect several times before it finally works. My computer is about 20 feet from the router. Have I done something wrong? I'm thinking of returning the router if I have this problem every single time I try to use the computer!
