    Default Internet Connection with WIFI

    Just purchased a Nook Color. Set up went well until setting up wifi.

    NC allowed wifi connection, took me into internet and allowed establishing account.

    But, I keep getting kicked off. The settings say it is "Connect, testing.." or "Connected, but no internet."

    From time to time, it will allow me to be online, but not for long.

    A call to customer service and I was told it was my routers fault. And, I would need to reset my security level.

    A second call to customer service said that it was because I had too many things using the wifi in the house and I should either use the reader at BN or wait until tomorrow night to try again.

    Any suggestions?

    I have something similar on occasion and what I do is unplug my router for 20 seconds and plug it back in to reboot it and my nook color works fine after that. You might also try using the forget connection function and redo your password.

    What is your security setting? The nook color does not work well with WEP. I know it would be a little hassle to change all your devices to WPA2 but if you have that as an option it would be worth it and also more secure than WEP.

    How old is your router? Just asking as we had one that started to drop in and out while on the internet. It would work fine one day and then the next it wouldn't. After about a month it started to get pretty frustrating. Replaced it with a new one and haven't had a problem since. Just a suggestion.
