      wirless problems

      hi,

      i had an acquring network problem, after reading through various fixs, i followed the steps to enter a manual ip. subnet,gateway address etc. this cured the acquring network issue, but the internet connection drops immediatley, then automatically sets up again, and continues to do so. i have tried my wirless adapter on a different machine, and all works fine, i'm using the sagem sky router, the connection works fine when wired.

      thanks in advance

      channel is set to auto, as far as i am aware, dont think anything is interferring with the router as i can connect off a different set up.

      but the internet connection drops immediatley, then automatically sets up again,
      Do you really mean the internet, or is it your wireless connection that is dropping?

      If it is the latter, change the channel to 13 and work your way down till you find one that holds the connection. You might also want to change the mode to g+b or g only.
