the AP is a combo modem/wireless router by Motorola. what plugs into the back of it is a coax cable and power cable.
now, I am able to connect to the unit (and subsequently, the Internet) using both my iPhone and Google Nexus 7. I have no issues at all accessing the Internet with those two devices. the problem is with my laptop. I'm able to connect to the wireless network with 5 full bars of wireless reception, but have trouble accessing websites. every now and then, the wireless bars in the system tray will have the yellow exclamation point signifying connection issues, but most of the time, all appears to be fine.
Dell Studio XPS 1647
Gateway IP: 192.168.0.1
So far, here's a list of things I've tried.
Static IP within proper subnet range
manually entered DNS servers (tried both Google and OpenDNS servers)
Disabled and reenabled wireless adapter
Power cycled modem/router unit
Deleted all other wireless network stored info
Disabled Ethernet port and Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter
reinstalled WiFi adapter drivers
Please help if you can. Not really sure what else i can try and i need the internet to access two online classes. Thanks a lot in advance.
