      Two wireless connections to router - problems !

      Can get my laptop to connect wirelessly no problem. WPA encrypted, connects automatically etc.

      However, when I try to connect my desktop thats where the problems begin. For some reason it fails to get a DHCP adress.

      Any ideas ?

      Re: Two wireless connections to router - problems !

      I had this problem yesterday when setting up my wirless network. I managed to get one computer connected no problems but the other would not because it would not asign a DHCP address. What I did was to move the router near to both computers, make sure they were both connection before moving the router again back to the main phone socket. It worked for me after doing this.

      Yeh. I have had two connections working in the past but I'm sure I had to fiddle about rebooting the router etc. Crap or what?
