As I mentioned earlier, since other devices are working ok, we can eliminate the network. I just did a quick Google search on the phrase "stored network passwords in xp" and you'll find what you need if you are running xp. More on this in post #2 above.

But if you can connect at other locations other than your home, then you know your PC, NIC, software, are working ok (else it wouldn't connect anywhere) and you have a ALL changes. On the router, make sure the channel settings for the networks is set to Auto. What else could have gone wrong… Virus on the firmware?

Essentially, connect one device at a time and get it working before moving on to the next device. later in the day it rapidly stops working as in when i disconnect and reconnect it will break again in a few seconds then really late like at 11 to 12 This can cause your signal to drop at random.
