....What is "crashing" ? It is a word which has been used too much and has became too general... Just describe what happens without the word "crash"... What happens to yur friend's computer when youes "crash" ? Disconnected from the Internet ?
I have a new thinkpad T410 and I am staying with a friend of mine who has a mac airport express wireless router. Whenever I am at her house, my computer starts crashing. It began crashing once every couple of days but became ever more frequent and by now it can be every few minutes. When I turn off the wifi in the computer, the crashing stops. When I am connected to wifi somewhere else (at another friend's house or at Starbuck's), it's ok. When I'm connected here - whether I am actually doing something on line or not- it crashes. I know it sounds crazy and maybe it is (hopefully!), but it's the only constant condition that I have observed for the problem.
I sent it in for repair and they said they couldn't duplicate the problem. They swapped out the system board and the wifi card and sent it back. I started using the computer at another friend's house and later at Starbuck's and it was fine. I brought it back here and it crashes again, now every few minutes.
The computer is maybe two months old, and the few programs I have on it are all new, so shouldn't be a compatibility problem.
Has anybody ever heard of this or experienced it before? It's kind of nuts.
