What's wrong with my connection or settings?

First of all it started when we had a power cut, when I turned my computer back on the internet wasn't working, it constantly said on the bottom right of the screen identifying network, they it wouldsay no internet acces, it would then go on to say that is public or somethig and is a undefined network, this happens on wireless and wired so I restored my system, now webpages load extremley slow on start up and after a few mins it starts loadin websites but they are all loaded wrong and out of place, i've deleted cookies etc but the problem still persists, sometimes it works but then any applications sign out and web pages load continuously even thought it states it's still coonnected, the download speed also goes down both on wired and wirless and where my wired used to be over 4MB and my wirless was 3.8MB they are now both the exact same at 3.7MB andsometimes 1.2MB, but the speed of the internet on ALL other devices on bot wired and wirelss work fine with no problems and retain their speed, so I definatley know there is a problem with computer but I don't know what :S help

Sorry you are having issues and welcome to the forum!

Most likely caused by a failed router/modem reboot after power outtage. If it was off long enough you may have lost all settings. Do you see your old wireless network name still via Windows?

Please reboot your router/modem and report back!
