So for some reason I can't get on wireless like I've been able every other day. it's still saying conection is very good and speed is 11mbps. I'm fucked when it come to this shit and even more so at 2330. I keep trying sites and all I get is "cannot find server" any ideas of what i can try?

Check your IP and DNS settings. I.e, if you are getting an ip address automatically, check that you are actually getting one.
A lot of times you just need to check to make sure you have the right WEP key (if you are using one).
Sorry, I'm too lazy to go into detail, but google searches on those subjects will certainly yield you something."If I could have any K2 skis this year I'd go with the Volkl Gotamas." - Monique

Sounds like you're on a wireless connection to a modem. Your connection to the modem is good but the modem itself isn't functioning right.
If you're on cable or DSL, turn off your modem for a few seconds and turn it back on. When all else fails call tech support for whoever you buy your service from.

If you are getting a connection, but can't get to any sites? What about email, does that work? Also need more info on the router/modem configuration as well as the service you are on (cable, DSL, etc.). Start out if you are running Windows by:
Start -> run -> cmd
at the C: in the box type IPCONFIG /all
Take a look at the results, is there a DNS entry?
Then try from the same box:
Is there a reply? If not then go to the control panel and look at the Network Connections. One will be your wireless card- look at the properties (right click on it to select), then go to the TCP/IP settings- are they set for a static address and DNS or obtain automatically?
If there is a router on the system (there has to be either a wireless router or access point that you are reaching) then check the SSID and information and verify the router is configured correctly. (Again more info is needed before anyone on here can begin to offer specific info on what is the right info).
Finally, have you called or talked to your internet service provider's tech support to see if they can help with the issue?

Try reseting your cable modem and your wireless access point. Turn cable modem on first, then access point.
