okay so i'm currently attempting to fix what i think to be a driver issue on my laptop, I installed 10.10 a couple days ago and have not been able to connect to the internet.
But network signal is recognized and when I click connect from applet "connection established" but there is still no internet which I have seen other people have posted about...

my catch is that when I try to use internet, establish connection or download software update it kicks off the other devices in the house using the wireless connection!

anybody have any ideas what to do from here? ~thanx
