Not posted in these forums for some while, but here goes...
Having my uncle to stay since he has had to sell his house. His Vista laptop connects no problem & does not report browsing trouble. Whenever his laptop is connected (wirelessly), my tower drops the network connection (wireless) frequently, making browsing all but impossible. Is Vista that bad somehow?!?
Network drops under both Win 7 & Ubuntu 12.04. Weird huh? Not sure where to start TBH, specs on request, just wanted to sound out first. Bizarre, but true. I can use my vintage laptop OK (also wireless), so all is not lost. But tower is many magnitudes faster.
Please post your initial ideas, rebooting does not help, so not assigned same IP. And that is me all out of ideas...
