Hello all. I certainly hope someone here can help. This is what I have and what is going on.....My desktop is hooked to a Westell 2200 modem and a Linksys Wireless-B Router (Model BEFW11S4). Everything works fine, all lights are green etc. Then I have a laptop that has the following network adapters....1394 Net Adapter, LAN-Express AS IEEE 802.11g miniPCI Adapter and a Realtek RTL8139/810x Family Fast Ethernet NIC.
I have previously had the laptop networked with the desktop and had no problems. Two days ago, I used the recovery option on the laptop to get it back to its orginal state and now I'm having problems with it staying connected to the network. One minute, the little computer on the task bar says, it is connected to the network and the signal strength is good and then the next minute, it says that a connection is unavailable. Sometimes there may be two or three minutes in between where I can stay connected but no more than that. I'm not sure if I have something configured wrong or what but it is driving me crazy. Any help that anyone could provide would be greatly appreciated.
