PC internet stuck on "Identifying".

Hey guys.
The main router I use, the one I'm usually connected to, has been having the same issue I had a few months ago. It's the router everyone in the house is connected to, weird part is , mine is the only one that does this. It shows the 5 bars but It has a CAUTION sign, the yellow triangle with a ! in it, it says the router I'm connected to is "Identifying or Unidentified". If its like that, I cant connect to the internet at all, can't do anything that involves the internet. I want to go back to me WIDEBAND router, I'm stuck on my crappy neighbors internet, any suggestions?? I wanna go back to playing my games lag free.
Thanks much!

Not sure I'm following your setup - you are using your neighbour's modem and internet ? and are getting the yellow triangle on your PC only ? why can't you go back to the original modem ?

Please describe your setup and problems better so we can help, thanks....

Ah, I mean RIGHT NOW, I am using my neighbors internet due to the non connection on my main one in my house, everyone else's (Brother - dad - mom - ect.) work perfectly, no connection issue. Im not using the original modem cause thats the one with the triangle on it, on the other hand, my neighbor's internet does not have it, this issue has something to do with my computer and the modem in the next room, the neihbors inter net is what I use while I have this issue, thanks for responding btw - excuse the fail grammar I'm in a hurry.

OK, I think I have a better picture of your setup now. From what you have just described it looks like the problem is with YOUR COMPUTER not your modem if others in the family are working well connected to the same modem ? To narrow the problem with your computer, can you connect an ethernet cable to the same modem to see if the problem is there both wired and wireless.

A lot of problems can be fixed knowing if they exist in both modes of connection - come back with what you find and I'll try to help further (it is not easy fixing problems when you are not in front of them).
