    If you have a CAT 5 cable just hook youre laptop up with that and see if you have the internet when its connected via a wire

    I was able to connect to the internet wired up to router no problem the AOL proxy settings were all cleared so that was not the problem so internet connection ok wired. some other factor using wireless signal still think its the wireless security alarm so I am going to try 802.11a router with card instead of 802.11g.b. unless any more ideas to try.

    Can't you temporarily switch off the alarm to check?
