Wireless LapTop connectivity
Posted on 2005-05-10
My LapTop has the intel adapter, and I can't seem to keep the internet connection continuous. I have disabled all firewalls and the adapter shows it has a connection -4 bars. An ip address has been assigned to the laptop when I do an ipconfig /all command, yet I can't get to the internet or ping the router 192.168.1.1- i get a request time out message. the only thing i have enabled on the IPAQ router/switch is MAC filtering. DHCP is enabled. My CAT5 connected computers work fine. I have rebooted the router and cable modem.
I have two desktop computers that are networked connected to same router via CAT5 and they work fine

THe IPAQ gateway is set for DHCP 192.168.1.11 thru 54. the cptrs are usually assigned 11,12,13. Sometimes I get an error message stating their is an ip conflict but i correct thru ipcongig /release /renew cmd. My main problem is the laptop will access the internet and then it wont. Its inconsistant. I have disabled all Firewalls on the laptop. the only software on the laptop is EZ Armour Anti Virus (NOT FIREWALL), XP-SP2, AOL 9.0, and Office 2003.
What is causing this loss of connection to the internet.
