For me, updating dlink driver fixed this. However, I have heard this doesn't always work and ... you may get lucky.
There's another issue that I'm running into. Some (nut?) has been promoting a set of instructions to secure WIFI and didn't follow up by revealing possible side effects. You can imagine how many networks I've had "tech" go out and turn the SSID broadcast back on. It's great money and if I could determine who's promoting this, "tech" would like to say "thanks for the work!"
I am using a Dlink wireless PCI adapter which is at around 11MB per sec. In event viewer I am recieving a warning as follows:
Your computer was not able to renew its address from the network (from the DHCP Server) for the Network Card with network address. The following error occurred:
The semaphore timeout period has expired. . Your computer will continue to try and obtain an address on its own from the network address (DHCP) server.
I am online and not experiencing any internet problems other than Com+ fails to fire up the connection to a subscription; seems to be when I start yahoo messanger
would care less about the DHCP problem, however my IP address has been the same for some time now. Please help.
