connect to SQL Server fails in wireless mode

when i connect the laptop through wifi, it won't connect to another server. (through SQL Server). but when plugged in through ethernet wire, then it connects fine thru SQL Server to that server.

the laptop has a static Ip for this purpose. (firewall is turned on just for the laptop to hit specific server.

can the laptop be made to receive the internet connection fine, (through static up) even through wi-fi? what will it take?
thnkas.

You might can increase the timeout for login on SQL... I ran into this not long ago and eventually had to use a wired connection since a wireless connection isn't constant but a send/receive toss back and forth.....

A follow-up question. What standard are you using on your wireless network (B/G/N)?

Zac HarrisSystems Administrator Commented:
Sure. What is the model of the wireless router or access point you are using? I may can tell from that.

As for the connection... it could be lag time between the domain controller and the SQL server. Is there a particular purpose of having the server outside the domain?

itguy012006, i was trying to find the model # from the network team, but they have not responded yet..

to answer your question, i have not had a chance to find it as it is in a corporate wi-fi. is it possible to find out from the laptop?

the server is in a server farm outside the office building.

thanks for your assistance
