So, my belief is the router was hacked. That is my first issue. The second one is a bit more in detail. Every so often, our wireless connections DROP. Now, There's one of three conditions that could cause this, and they could be as follows: 1) The drivers aren't working properly - IBM is currently working out some bugs in the firmware for our T60p laptops. The firmware we have on them right now is required to access the internet at out university - but it sucks anyways! 2) The Network really has been hacked, and the firmware installed is causing this to happen. I believe this is both the most likely cause, and the easiest one for you guys to help me fix. 3) My last theory about the intermittent connections is a litle different. I live in an apartment complex, and is there any possibility that all of the stray connections here are causing the connection to drop every so often? ----Here are my conditions: Difficulty logging into router, via wireless, or wired. Impossible to change the firmware, and it display's a funny message: "Upgrade are failed" ... What the ****...an engrish router? Im just curious what the hell is going on Can anyone help me?
