Id like to have a good signal everywhere but Id like my HTC and Ipod to get WIFI connection without signal dropping after one second? If the internet works, it's your router that's on the fritz.2To get the internet functioning again, turn off the computer(s) and unplug the modem and router. this morning it lost signal and i have not been able to get it back.

My iTouch works fine and connects to the network, but the laptop spends forever trying to aquire the network and then can't find the ip.
