You mentioned that your friend is on the same Networtk -do you mean your friend in the next room connects via your Linksys wirelessly ? And do you also connect wirelessly or via your NIC by cable ? OR do you mean your friend is on the same ISP(Network) as your are and both of you have separate home Networks ?
Hey all. I would really appreciate some feedback on this issue that has been causing me some problems for quite some time now.
I have a Sony VAIO FS-550 laptop that seems to be the only computer with connection issues to my home network (Linksys WRT54G). My laptop will connect for between one to five minutes usually and then suddenly the connection will go dead and I have to repair my connection before I can stay connected for another one to five minutes before I must repair it again.
Tonight I discovered that every time I repair my connection my friends computer who is in the next room over (on the same network)loses his connection. When my computer is turned off his connection is fine.
Is this an IP conflict issue? What is going on here? I don't have authentication on or anything like that. This has been killing me and I would really appreciate any help.
Thanks so much
