    why does my imac keep losing internet connection
    my internet goes down then I have to turn off WiFi and back on again cures it for another 5 to 10 minutes. is there anyway I can sort this out. I have just had a new router/modem AirTies as my last one got burned out. This problem has only started with this new router/modem. If anybody can help please explain as simply as you can I am a bit slow with the workings of the computer world.

    As a suggestion set up the router again using your browser with a different name and password, and go into System preferences of whatever operating system you are using and use Automatic and set up.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    Got a user guide for starters? There are many different models. Use Google listing your model number and something like this will come up. Then click on User Manual:-
