If it works fine elsewhere as you said and only at home it doesn't. We recommend first that you check your router configurations specially the security features as they may inpact your connection.

Thanks. I have also tried the second option, no solution.
On the first option, you say "check your router configurations specially the security features". I'm not sure what to look for?
One thing to note is that my router has worked fine for year and still works flawlessly - with multiple notebooks, ipads, iphones - the notebooks all running Windows 7.
Now with a new Asus Zenbook running Windows 8 - doesn't work, and it also stops the Windows 7 laptops from working. When I switch off the Wifi on the Windows 8 laptop, the Windows 7 one works fine. When I switch on the wifi on the windows 8 laptop (asus) it messes up the network - with non-existent speed and very intermittent connection.
I read somewhere it could be to do with UPnP...
