two of three computers can connect to the internet
Posted on 2005-04-23
I have three computers all connected to a Linksys BEFSR41 router, two of them are wirless connection via Linksys WAP54G access point. Computer one is wired and runs XP-pro service pack 2 and connects fine. Computers two and three are wireless, both have XP-home, and only computer three can connect. From computer one I can see computer one and three from workgroup MSHOME. From computer two I can see computer two and three from workgroup MSHOME. And from computer three I can see everything in MSHOME. The kicker is the above situation sometimes changes. Sometimes I can see all three from each machine and some time just one or two. Why would this change all the time? I have noticed that when I go to the router set up and change DHCP to disable, save it, and change it back to enable, save it, everything works great for a few hours. How do I set this up so I do not have to keep messing around in the router?
