One thing to check first is IF the computer can TURN OFF the NETWORK ADAPTER to conserve power? ======================== 1.Control Panel, Network and Internet, Network and Sharing Center and click Manage The main culprit behind this type of problem is usually software, not hardware. I use Netgear Routers and Gigabit Switches. The workstations are running WinXP Pro all patched and with the latest drivers.
Now select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) in the list box and click on Properties. Windows 9x/2000/XPUNSUPPORTED NOTE: Windows 95/98, Windows Me, Windows 2000, and Windows XP are no longer supported by the Help Desk. But to see if there was more to this story. So if you have a Dell, go to support.dell.com, find your model and download the driver for the wireless card.
These products are no longer actively supported by Microsoft. On the laptop, open up the Device Manager and UNINSTALL the network adapter. but what could be? Vista was just as stable as the other 2/3 that were different versions of XP, Pro SP3, Media Center SP3, and Home SP3.
The Media Center being the wireless one. It seems you need tech support rather than a discussion. The computer (and hence the windows XP pro install) are fairly new (subjective...10 months.... It will, however, still see the server if the user has a drive mapped.

Now, perhaps it seems illogical to do it in reverse, but I'll set a few of them to DHCP mode and see what happens if they go offline. You'll need to visit the web site for the hardware manufacturer for your PC and download the latest drivers. These machines are not statically assigned but have a DHCP reservation from the server assigned to that MAC address.Try this...Take one of the PCs and set the address on the NIC weblink The problem is the Asus laptop internet connection is intermittent.
Two computers, one with strong wireless signal other weak I can only connect to the internet through an ethernet cable.. When the laptop works fine is the desktop off? Question, when the laptop is on, is the wireless desktop always on?
