Wireless Problem: Files Won't Open the Application

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?RnJhbms=?=, May 7, 2007.

  1. I'm using Win XP Professional and have a problem that has plagued my laptop
    for about a year.

    When I'm connect to the Internet via a wireless connection I can't open a
    file by clicking on it (in Windowed Explorer). When I click on the file, I
    get the "hour glass" icon indefinitely. It is as though the system is
    searching for the file's application on the network.

    If / when I close the wireless connect, I can click on the file and the
    application (Excel, Word, PowerPoint, etc) opens normally. All works normally
    when connected to the Internet via my ethernet connection.

    If I open the application then File->Open etc. everything works normally.

    I'd really appreciate any suggestion or help.
