Wireless Internet Problem; AT&T 2Wire

OH MY GOSH...YES YES, IT's me again! Back with yet another problem! -rolls eyes-

The computer I'm using right now to type this...is my father's (aka Old Faithful) HP Pavilion F1703 (she's old but she works)

The Internet we're using is: AT&T 2 wire.

My old laptop was able to go online but at times when my father decided to go on his desktop, my internet connection would fail. then maybe in five minutes I'll be able to go back online. (this problem started in 2007) but i always thought maybe it just does that. (Yes I know, I should have looked into it back then) Then of course my laptop just...decided to crash and burn...after me trying so hard to get it to go online. (according to the guys at staples "Your laptop just pretty much fried the motherboard"

I now have a new laptop and it's doing the same thing.

Last night my father wanted to go online...I was in my room and my internet went out.

I walked out of my room and saw my dad turn his computer on, i walked back into my room and the internet was working...but only for 2 mins before it went off again. I walked back out of my room and saw my dad was online... after that i tried a few times and decided to figure it out the next day (since I was tired from a long day).

Have you checked your modem? 

I've had this happen on two different occasions and both times it was due to the modem not working.  I believe both were a 2-wire as well.  A new modem fixed it for me.

Hmmm never thought of that... -looks at my modem: Power light is on. Ethernet light is one. Wireless light is blinking, DSL light is on and so is Internet- Hmmm...I do not know maybe your right or maybe it's something else but I think I should start looking into that. I wonder if AT&T will charge me...LOL.

Something's wrong somewhere. Try restarting it from the inside.

Open a browser on a computer that's connected to your network with Ethernet (not wireless) and type 192.168.254.254 then Enter. When asked for a access password, it will be admin unless you have changed it.

From the four icons at the top select System. Right below that, choose Details. Over at the right, click "Restart the system".

Also, try Disabling and Re-enabling the wireless - At the top, click the home Network icon. Then choose Summary. Over at the right, you should see a button next to the Wireless interface indicator that says Disable. Click that, wait until your wireless is off and then Re-enable it.

If this problem persists, call ATT - they should send you a new one if yours is screwed up.

Re: Wireless Internet Problem; AT&T 2Wire
Hi, I had a working connection (wireless) on AT&T 2wire226 router until about 4 days ago. Is the wireless light supposed to be on at all times? If that's the case it hasn't been in the past and the wireless worked. Go figure. I called AT&T. They said it's working when I know it isn't. I've made sure all my connections are tight, reset the router; basically did everything I knew to do and still nothing. I know it's not my daughter's Ipod because she connects every other wireless area. What do I now do? Thanks for your help!
