A few days ago, my internet connection kept dropping. So, I switched off for the night and as I did, Service Pack 3 downloaded. Since then, whenever I have switched on, a connection has been made which lasts a few seconds, then it drops the IP address.
I have tried disabling the connection and then reconnecting, reinputting the WEP key, but it still won't hold onto the address.
My daughters' laptops are not experiencing this problem.
You have to start your Browser and type the correct Address into the Address Bar for your router Settings, these are built into the Router.
I have a 3Com Router My address is 192.168.1.1 Yours may differ depending on the Router Make and Model. It brings you to a Log in Screen where normal logging for mine is admin in lower case letters, as above yours may differ. then you go to wireless settings to change them and then save the settings
The message I get on the Intel(R) Pro Wireless TRoubleshooter says:
The wireless adapter failed to get a valid IP address. This can be due to an authentication failure with the network, incorrect wireless security passwords (encryption keys), or because of a DHCP server malfunction.
One thing, when it connects it is saying Wireless Network Connection (Peer-to-Peer). I don't know what that means?
I have tried setting the WZC service but it just won't do it :(
Is your Network Settings set to Auto if not they need to be. As I said in my First post you do not need to join a Network, The Settings are in the Router type http//: before the number you entered in the Address bar then press enter
