      Rather odd wireless problem

      Hi guys,

      Scenario,
      I come back from work tonight and my three sons are playing Age of Empires 2, multiplayer - LAN. All three in one room, two laptops and one desktop all utilising the Sky Netgear router - ok?
      I switch on my desktop and number one son is immediately disconnected from the router, after a couple of minutes his connection reappears......
      This has happened quite a few times recently - any ideas?
      Thanks in advance

      Hi Crashcourse

      Your desktop might be set to "use the following IP address"

      All your laptops and desktops should be set to "Obtain IP address automatically"

      To Check this:

      Click start
      Control panel
      Network connections
      right click Local Area Connection (or Wireless Network Connection)
      Click properties
      scroll down and highlight Internet Protocol TCP/IP
      click properties

      If there is any IP address on this window tick the radio button
      "Obtain an IP address automatically"
      Click OK

      For good measure check all your PC's and laptops
