Hi. Let's see if I can explain this problem correctly.
Yesterday I installed my wireless router so that I can use my laptop anywhere in the house. Went through the entire installation process without any problem and sure enough, the laptop is picking up a great signal.
I also have a desktop and the DSL modem that was being used with the desktop is the modem that is now working with the wireless router. Yesterday they were both working fine, no problem. Now for some reason my desktop is acting up. The monitor keeps going blank and says it's not receiving a signal from the computer even though the desktop shows as being on. If I turn off the desktop and then turn it back on, the monitor comes back on, no problem. Then it seems to blank out again after a bit.
I don't keep the laptop on constantly but the desktop does stay on. Or at least it used to. Is it possible that for whatever reason the laptop is interferring with this? I don't see how that's possible but this problem started AFTER I did the whole wireless set up.
Any thoughts or suggestion? I'd appreciate any insight you might have. Thanks.
