Losing internet when using static IP

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by Chad Richardson, Jun 6, 2005.

  1. Hello all,

    Very interesting behaviour. I have set up my laptop with a static IP
    (becuase it sits behind a router at the office) so that I can connect to it
    from my home computer using remote desktop. Now I have taken my laptop home
    for a few days and it connects fine to the wireless network at home (a
    linksys wrt54G) but after a period of time, I lose connection to the
    internet. The connection to the network is still in tack, but I cannot get
    to the internet.

    I also cannot ping internal network resources, like my other machine or even
    the router itself ( I haven't found a consistent way to restore
    internet connectivity other than changing my connection to DHCP.

    Any ideas?

    playing online games I lose the internet connection.

    The weird bit is that hovering over the Windows wireless connection icon in
    the task bar, the connection speed is gradually reducing from 54Mb per second
    to zero over this 5 minutes before it loses the connection and starts to

    All ideas appreciated...
