Annoying Linksys problem!
Posted on 2003-11-25
I have two computers. Win2k and XP. My cable connection is connected to the Win2k and I've Linksys Wireless Network Access Point which enables the XP to also have an internet connection.
Now, this never happens before but lately the connection in the XP keeps dying without any reason. The status (from those two little screens on the bottom) says that the signal strength is very good at 11 MBps, but I still have no internet access. SOmetimes the connection does get back on (automatically), but only for an hour or two.
Everything (internet connection wise) in the Win2k is still fine and from the XP I can access the files in the win2k. I've tried plugging out the Linksys cable and wait a couple seconds and plug it in back but there's no result.
When I did ipconfig (in the XP), the IP address, Subnet Mask, and the Default Gateway exist, but the Connection-specific DNS Suffix is empty. In addition to that, everything in the XPis set as static (so, nothing like configure automatic IP address whatsoever)
So what's going on actually? Is there any remedy to this?
