Unhappy Can't connect to my home network

Hi all, First time posting here - any input would be greatly appreciated. I've just moved into a new apt and internet has be installed so all apts in the house can use it. The first day i connected no problem at all (wifi - no cable) - entered the security key i was given and same worked fine for the evening. I took my laptop to work the next day where i also use both wifi and cable connection - (wifi works fine in the family home and other friends houses too) again same was working fine. When i got home i tried to establish a connection with no luck. My flatmate was on his computer and getting a good connection. I tried all the diagnostic tools but was still unable to get online.....i've since come back into work today and both wifi and cable connnections are working fine. - basically i was advised there was limited connectivity on the home network (even though signal was good and like i said my friend was sitting close by working away online on his laptop).........i'm at a loss to why this is - if same was happening in different places i'd blame the comp. or if i hadn't been able to connect the night before i'd blame the connection........tried resetting network adaptor/deleting connection and starting again - none is working - it seems my computer wont let me connect to that particular network (although it did the night before and does in other locations) - i don't get it! - again any help on this would be greatly appreciated..thanks

Hi Murphachov

If you can provide us the brand and model number of your wireless router, Maybe it will help us determine the problem.
