My wife has a Tecra 8100 laptop using a Trendnet wireless card and Win2000.
We have a Viewsonic wireless router. My computer is connected to the router via cable and I never have any problems.
My wife's computer using the wireless has times where she sees a message about "network cable unplugged". The little green light is out. Then it comes back on in about 10 seconds and it works. The problem is that it will do this every 20 to 60 seconds and continue for a while, then everything will work fine for a while.
Also, (2nd question). When using the wireless utility (not sure if it's windows or trendnet) to set up the card, there is a section to search. When we do this, we see not only our own router but sometimes a device called "Ricky232" with a MAC address (it is not always there). Is this some else's router? If so, is this a danger?
when using that same utility, all network "measurements" appear good (the thing that shows signal strength, etc..).
