Have you checked with your ISP to see if they are having any problems ? Can you log onto your modem and check that you have the settings right.

You haven't given too much info about your set up, can you tell the experts what operating systems the machines are running, who is your ISP and is it the same one as you had at the old house.

I'm sure with a little more information someone will be able to help you out, welcome to the forum.
