router is D-link DI-624( discontinued by d-link) is ( and normally is) hardwired to desktop.
set-up with security ( dont know which at the moment).
Recently one of their laptops started dropping the wireless connection almost immediately, he brought it to me, i checked it out and it connected fine to my network(wpa2) and others that i have tried, he took it home, (resolved a few minor malware issues) it connects briefly, drops almost immediately.
Different laptop in the house connects to network using same username/pass without issue.
all computers have been turned off.
wait 1 minute plugged in modem, wait until ready
plug in router wait until ready
desktop on, connects fine
other laptop on, connected fine. turn off this laptop
laptop in question( newer lenovo) on, same issue, drops within a second or two.
My thoughts are that i should have them do a hard reset on the router, set secirity and see what happens, but just curious if anyone has any suggestions and what else i may be able to look at in the settings of the router?
