I was connected to fibre broadband last Friday. My desktop is ok, but my two other computers have problems connecting to the internet, especially my laptop. The iPad has intermittent, but brief problems only.

The laptop will connect with some pages (Stuff) but not others (NZ Herald). And everything/anything loading at all is slow.

What I have done so far:
Turn laptop off, turn on.
Turned internet access from laptop off/on again.
Checked password to internet from laptop (it is correct, even the correct upper case).

Everything else about the laptop seems to work. I don't use the laptop at home much, so it has taken a few days for me to realise this was happening.

Any suggestions about what I do next? As always - TIA. :)

Now it seems ok. After a whole morning of fiddling around - grrrrrr :(

However - we seem to have action now, for which I am grateful. :)

Both of those things I think. As well as accusing myself of impending Alzheimers.... But that is another story. :)

A modem re-boot often helps - switch off for at least a minute.

Ah - thanks for that bit of advice. I'll remember and do that in future!
