When my wife starts her Laptop if it connects to our wifi network everything is fine. But most of the time it will connect and have on the screen unindefied public network. The network it can not identify is the same one but she will then only get local connection. If it sees this as public is this why it will only allow local access ?
I have set her laptop up to automatically get IP address. I have MAC filtering on the router and hers is on the list? She is running XP, Can someone explain what I need to do to make sure it connects to our network. Hope someone can help Cliff
I had this problem with my wife's laptop it could not connect to our router although my PC was connecting OK in the same room. The simple answer was to change the wireless channel on the router and the two computers.
