Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I HAVE A DELL COMPUTER, AND A LYNKSYS MODEM AND ROUTER. I HAVE TRYED SEVERAL TIMES TO GET THE ROUTER TO WORK SO I CAN USE MY IBM T40 LAPTOP, WIRELESSLY. EACH TIME MY INTERNET ACCESS ON THE DELL IS TURNED OFF, AND I SHOW NO SIGNAL TO MY LAPTOP. I RECONNECT TO THE MODEM ONLY AND EVERYTHINGS FINE ON THE DELL AGAIN. WHAT GIVES??


Answers :

Sounds to me like u r running the dell in the usb, and it has to be on for the ibm to work, or you have a dual ip addressing problem, which is a negative to the ibm when the dell is off.

My son has a IBM think pad as well, and when he uses the Ibm with his linksys wireless router he has the same problem, or did until I addressed the dual ip address issue, which I had to change the Ip address on our netgear, and left his as was and changed the one from My Dell inspiron 8600, I suggest you go to the linksys web site and follow the re install of new drivers for your router and if possible upgrade. they have available w wireless handing software program available to linksys customers as a trial you can download called NETMAGIC which also works quite well, and your able to monitor your network and it usually works well, I've used it until I upgraded to my netgear wireless G router.
hope this info helps you out.
