Thanks to you for all the help you gave me in my previous post. I ended up formatting my laptop and reinstalling everything. Something that was overdue anyway I guess. Good news is I have a lot more space now!
As to answer some of the comments:
katm: I didn’t change anything which is why it was puzzling me so much. Literally from one moment to another it stopped working.
I don’t think switching to something like Linux is the way to go, I was reading a little bit about it a few weeks back and it confused me. A lot.
ish: My router had been playing up, but more along the lines of randomly restarting itself. This has been fixed since I updated the firmware a while before running into the problems I had with the net.
dmosbon: Just what I did; I saw it as a last option as it’s so much hassle!
sulz: Yes, i did ask them and they said they couldn’t see anything wrong.
Ashish: See above.
Sha: I have no idea where those places are! Everything’s fine in my area though.
Again, thanks a lot. :)
