    I need to know how much a web card for a laptop is? my laptop isn't connecting to the internet at all and we know it isn't the router cuz mom's laptop is connected fine. I have done a virus scan and maleware (mainly cuz i haven't done them in a long time and thought that was the problem for some odd reason) and dad asked a friend at work and he did what his friend said and still nothing. we r thinking it is my web card cuz i have had problems in the past where my internet just randomly disconnects. normally it will b ok if i just restart it but last Tues. it didn't come back. and i made sure my switch was on and it is. so i am just trying to figure out how much a web card is compared to a laptop so i don't get ripped off when i do get it fixed. it is a Gateway if that makes any difference. I would love to hear back from some of u guys cuz i would love to have my laptop back so i can play my MMO and soon play that new transformers MMO that is suppose to launch this year.

    by Web card, do you mean ethernet port card or wireless adapter? Both of those are just between 10 and 20 bucks.

    I would try power cycleing your router. Basically just unplug it and plug it back in. That always works for me.

    Well, you could always walk into a random office building wearing coveralls, say that you're there to replace some of their outdated equipment & that Jeff from head office should've told them about this a week ago, and then just start taking whatever shit you need. It helps if you've got a couple of other guys with you.
