Re: wireless internet problem

Posts: n/a
You might double-check in alt.internet.wireless (no, I'm not trying to put
you off). I have fun and games with my wife's laptop and her sister's
desktop with Linksys wireless router hooked up to RoadRunner. Every once in
a while the wireless part stops working. Desktop (wired) is fine, so I know
the internet connection is good.

Probably the most important thing is to make sure you have the latest
drivers, both from Linksys (for the router) as well as MS for the wireless
