      Wireless works on one laptop but drops on the other

      I have had Sky broadband with a Netgear router since the end of last year and it's been working fine. I recently got a work laptop and tried to set up a wireless connection with my router. Everything connects okay but after about 30 seconds the connection drops. It then reconnects and carries on dropping every 30 seconds or so. My own laptop still connects perfectly. I've checked all the security settings and they seem fine. What's more, the laptop connects to the wireless router at my work without any problrems at all.

      Does anyone have any idea what might be happening?

      Thanks.

      Do both lap tops have manual or automatic IP addresses ? Just thinking about an ip conflict between the two lap tops.

      Well, I haven't assigned IP addresses, so automatic I assume.
