Alright - network gurus. This should be an easy one. I have a home network set up - 2 computers. I am running XP pro on both machines. Computer 1 - Wiresless NIC (D-Link DWL-G510) Computer 2 - Hardwired Router - WRT54G Have no problems 90% of the time. I can see both computeres. I can see the internet... BUT If the computer with the D-Link Wireless NIC (computer 1) sits idle for a couple of hours, the connection is down. The taskbar icon tray says that I am connected to the wireless network. However, I can not connet to the internet. Computer 2 (hardwired to the router) still connects. So, the question is - is the wireless PCI card timing out... is the wireless router giving up ? Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks Benjamin Alright, I lie...... both computers will loose connection to the network.... I give up... this computer...haaarrrkk.....is going through the window.
