Connectivity 101: keep losing my internet connection on dell win xp laptop
Posted on 2004-04-03
I'd like to be referred to a website that explains what the heck I'm doing with my internet connection so that I can post the question more intelligently ;-}
My internet connection lasts for about 10 seconds, then is lost. I can reconnect for a few seconds if I pop out my Lynksys network pc card, model number wpc11, and then put it back in.
I'm connected via an airport base station. Was working fine for months until this am. If I connect directly from the cable modem to my computer, I don't get any internet connectivity, which also is a new problem.
Pointing over the computer icons on the right lower corner: one icon displays: "Local area connection 2 wireless, speed 11Mbps, signal strength excellent". the second icon displays: "Local area connection: a network cable is unplugged".
where do i begin?
