    I'm able to detect and connect to my wireless router with my laptop --- I shows that I'm getting a full strength signal (full bars) BUT non of my apps are able to connect to the internet. Browsers, chat apps, anything internet related is unable to connect... but i've got full signal (so it says).

    Any ideas about what's going how and how to fix it? Thanks:confused:

    Are you sure you have the cable from the modem connected to the correct input in the router? Also, are you sure your modem is working correctly?

    Sounds like the modem has disconnected.

    Remember that being connected to the wireless network is not the same as being connected to the internet.

    Do you know how to check your ADSL status? My router uses a web based interface - I log in and can see all the logs/connection info...

    Which router are you using? Is it directly connected to your modem?
