How comes there is no wireless internet?

leanav
I have a question about wireless internet and I hope somebody can help me with solving it. I am using Samsung NP-R410Y, which has Windows Vista. Till last week the wireless internet worked perfectly. But since a week ago the sign of internet shows sometimes that there is only "local" and sometimes 'local and internet" connection, but one way or another my wireless intrenet does NOT work, even though the sign shows that there is "local and internet". I have tried many different things, from restarting my computer, reseting the adaptor, checking my firewall options, checking my internet options, used the error-search, which found no problem in my computer. But there has to be a problem in my computer, because wireless works perfectly by my housemates(we use the same adaptor) and also the internet works with the wire on my computer.

Has anybody got an idea, what should I do to get the internet back working again?

    When you connect to the wireless router, are you sure you are connecting to yours and not some neighbor's?

    Perhaps you can run
    ipconfig /all
    from the command line, and post the output here.

    How many housemates are wirelessly connected?

    Given the overheads of WPA security, encryption both ways, encoding and decoding for each user together with the occasional inevitable dropped packets and recovery, I'd reckon the average domestic wireless router would be at full capacity under 30% load conditions.

    If the average router claims to be capable of handling 16 simultaneous wireless connections, I'd say it will have reached its operational maximum with 5 wireless users.

    How many have you got?
