I have a client who, ideally, wants to run a DOS programme across his (small-10m distance) wireless network. The programme loads but everytime he selects a menu the Wireless connection is broken!! When it restores a few seconds or just under a minute the programme "errors".

He has no problem running the programme on his Laptop with a RJ45 cable connection.

Ironically I also run a different DOS programme under XP Home. It works fine on RJ45 but as soon as I switch to Wireless I get exactly the same problem.

I've tried different channels, Windows Wireless versus the proprietary wireless software but no change.

Any ideas? remember that plugging in a hard wire fixes the problem immediately.

I've talked with my clients software house and they claim that they have no reported issues. I've spoken with the Wireless hardware manufacturer and they - suprisingly say they same but it's just too much like co-incidence.

Many thanks

What is the exact programme running on the dos machine?

It could be a autentication issue.
