This is not the old Vista Broadcast flag issue? (see google, Vista Broadcast flag for details.)
Sorry but leaving out machine details can have me guessing badly.
Hello, I am not very good with the technical lingo of routers, so any help in clear english is much appreciated!
I have a D-Link DI-524 router that I have been using for over 5 years now. I have had a few bumps in the road, but this one has got me. I have never had trouble hooking up to the internet wireless with more than 1 computer in the past.
I currently have a Laptop that I like to use with a WIRE to the Router, but I sometimes need to move my laptop away from the router and use it wireless.
Problem I have is, my desktop is not close to a wired connection and must use the Wireless all the time.
So when I unplug my Laptop from the router and try to use it wireless, BOTH computers loose their internet connection within minutes(so sometimes it works wireless on both computers but only for a sec) and the only way to get it back is to turn off one of the computers and reboot the router.
I have never had this issue in the past, this just started recently, a friend stopped in and wanted to connect to the wireless and he was not able to either.
So I am stuck with only connecting to the router using Wires and only 1 wireless at a time!
Can someone please help me?? I have spent a couple months trying to figure it out?
ADDED: I updated all drivers on both wireless cards and I have the only Firmware I can get for my router v1.23
