Hi just wondering if it's only me but I know friends have had similar problems so here goes.

 

One machine running, start up another and the first machine is no longer connected to the interet and a third connection really confuses the dammed thing!

 

Sometimes a reset of the machine will cure the problem other times not and resetting the BThome hub 4 doesn't always work either.

 

On a dual boot machine constant problems until Windows was booted up for a change and the Wi-Fi card was said to be dissabled and since the user of this machine doesn't know how to do this I find it a bit of a puzzle.

 

The machine probably had not been booted into Windows for a while and some Linux distro's have a look at what Windows drivers are installed under the Windows system in this case Robolinux/W7 Ultimate 64Bit.

 

The card in this machine is an old Ralink RT61, two laptops connect through Wi-F and another machine using a Belkin USB device, one machine directly connected, the Sky box is also, the mobiles of course and I- Pad are wireless.

 

Even the main machine which is directly cabled has had occaisions where it has become disconnected!

 

Another router of a different make, model and a different ISP had the same problems more not less.

 

So has anyone else had these sort of problems or has any advice as to a remedy?

 

Finally will the router, me and a 4lb mallet on the concrete outside be a satisfying solution because thats about as close as it is getting!

 

Regards, Ian.
