Desktop connection drops only when card in laptop is active

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?TWlrZQ==?=, Jun 20, 2005.

  1. My wife has a D link DWL 520 card in her desktop running XP SP 2 Home
    edition. The connection works great when I am away for work or when my laptop
    card is unplugged ( I am running 2000 professional). The minute I plug in my
    laptop card and connect to the router her connection will drop within a
    minute or two and I will have to repair it only to have it disconnect over
    and over. It can't maintain a connection when my card is connected. When the
    laptop card is not connected hers will remain connected for days without a
    problem.

    Any ideas what is causing this ?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    If you are doing DHCP, have you checked to make sure there are enough
    addresses assignable to keep them from trying to use the same one?

    You might try setting a static IP address on hers, out of the DHCP
    assignable range, to see if helps.
