I have recently ran into problems on my home wireless after getting a new work laptop and a new netbook. I have 2 Vista laptops, an XP desktop, and 2 XP laptops that are all connected to the wireless network. The 2 Vista laptops and the XP desktop are able to connect and get out to the internet without a problem. The other 2 XP laptops however will connect to the router and work fine for about 15 minutes before we start running into problems. The 2 XP laptops will stay connected to the router, but will stop loading web pages. After a few minutes I will get page can not be displayed, but I am still able to ping websites and pull their ip addresses. The only way to have the internet function properly again is to remove the wireless network and then reconnect again. However, it will still do the same thing after about 15 minutes.
I have tried setting the wireless security to none, WEP, and WPA all have the same end result. I also tried using a different a router and reconfiguring from scratch, but that did not work either. I took the 2 XP laptops to my neighbors and was able to connect to his wireless network without a problem. I was able to stay connected and browse the web normally for the few hours I was over there. I don't have the any problem when connected using a network cable. The work XP laptop is running SP2 so I am forced to only use WEP and the other XP laptop is at SP3. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
