Thanks both, and I posted the question in gaming too.

Chev, I said in the previous post that i have indeed bought a new Wireless card, well dongle, and disabled the wireless card, I will try restarting the router, although the problem is only on my PC? Everything else runs fine. Thanks for the other advice i'll give it a go, it just seems like my internet is so incredibly slow on the PC and i'm having to reply to everything on my laptop. The internet is running pretty darn slow also, not really sure whats up!

Probably just something simple like a bad install of download of the driver,hard to say for sure. If it stays slow try clearing the cmos on the problem PC which sometimes helps with eithernet problems.

Here's results from my laptop.

And I would copy and paste the results from my PC but i can't, so here are the written results:

Desktop Results -

Download : 1.30mbp/s
Upload 0.02mbp/s
Ping : 1002ms.


Laptop Results -

Download 1.85mbp/s
Upload : 0.04mbp/s
Ping : 93ms.

Both the laptop and the PC are right next to each other.

As you can see some serious differences.

since installing windows 7 cant access internet wireles

need help big time!
just updated my sony vaio from vista to Win 7 and cant access the internet wirelessly!
can access via ethernet cable no probs!
my driver is a intel (R) 5100 AGN, have updated it via intel website.
spoken to my isp and they guided me through changing my DNS numbers manually, which worked for ten minutes, then they reverted back to auto mode by thereselves.
Have changed my security settings from WPA to WPA 2 to try this as read somewhere on web that this may work , but to no avail.

my wireless connection is looks fine between router and and lap top but no internet connection exists.

any help would appreciated! desperate.

Well I mentioned earlier about antenna postions making a difference. You are probably going nearly out of range but one more block like a wall or body is enough to slow the connection way down. The ping sure changed when you did that and the speeds were better also so the antenna position seems to be important here.

You might try to move the router around, higher or lower maybe and see if anything changes.

I also downloaded directx 10 at the same time, and the results instantly improved, i'll see how WoW goes now. So far looking good!

Well DX10 is usually required for most newer games to run correctly although I'm not sure how it would effect the wireless connection. You will usually get prompts to install DX10 when your installing the game I would think.
