      Unhappy one laptop working online other is intermittently working with Sky BB

      hey,

      i use my laptop at work, on the road and on other peoples wireless networks with no problems and it always works 100% works, even at work we have a Linksys & netgear wireless router with no problems

      BUT....

      i just got sky BB 3 days ago and while my partners Acer laptop (yes ACER!) works 100% with no problems or setup, mine keeps loosing the internet connection but i cannot work out why. It must be a setting or something on my PC becuase her laptop will be surfing away fine and i will be getting nothing - but it still says am connected to the router but i click things and nothing happens....it driving me MAD

      please any help or suggetions very welcome.

      thanks in advance
      Tanner

      Have you tried disabling UPnP on the router?


      So your partner's laptop definitely stay connected when yours disconnects?

      hi,

      yes her's definelty still works while i just sit with nothing happening - if i disconnect and re-connect to the network then it SOMETIME not always will start working again but usually doesnt

      i'll try to disable that option now and let you know how it goes.
