Hi, I'm here to help with your Mac questions. I'm willing to keep working until you are satisfied.Yes, it sounds like your wireless router is misbehaving. I recommend turning it off/on. And the Mac's wireless off/on...Then testing the wireless connection.
thank you i will try that.. the time machine is obviously working somewhat since it will back up, the computer recognizes it, and the internet will work if all the ethernets are plugged in.. i just cant get the wireles to work
