haven't had much time to use the internet on it at home yet because, at first, it was doing the same thing my last laptop did. today i reset the modem and router (i switched the channel it was broadcasting on as well) and it seemed as though the problem was fixed. i got strong internet for a good couple hours. then, out of nowhere, "limited or no conblahblahomgihaetyou" it did this at work yesterday as well. and i've realized that after i've connected and lost connectivity, when i try to find other networks in the area, of which i know there are plenty, vista will find NOTHING. i can search and search and search for networks all day, but until i reboot, NOTHING shows up.
any suggestions?? it is so frustrating having unreliable internet. at least when i know i don't have internet, i can't get my hopes up like, "oh, maybe it works now. let me check. *facepalm*"
