'Multiple Networks' Causes Multiple Problems

  kinger 19:33 13 Jan 2008

In Vista I can connect to all computers on my
home network, most of the time.

It all depends on whether my home network has a single connection, when it works fine or, a 'multiple connection' which causes problems with my computer communicating with my home network.

If I disconnect either of the two connections, both switch off.

I get my usual 'NETGEAR' connection plus another connection called NETGEAR 2'

Does anyone know how I'm getting TWO connections to the same router and why sometimes it happens and sometimes it doesn't?

Thanks K!

Wired or wireless?

Wireless, thanks

Does someone in your locality have a wireless network? Change your wireless channel to 1,6 or 11 and change the SSID to something unique.

Thanks Brundle, I'll give it a try.

I must admit, last night I had a NetGear 'Dlan' as one of the connections and I haven't got one of those, so you could well be right.

Thanks again, for now.

SSID was the problem Brundle, having changed it from NETGEAR to something unique has solved the problem.

Nice one. Thank you.
