Not static IPs, I already checked that.
My new USB wireless network adapter on my laptop will not connect when the desktop computer is on, but will when it is turned off. The desktop is connected to the router/dsl modem (an Actiontec Q1000 from Qwest) so I disabled the drivers but it still prevents the laptop from connecting. I’m going to pull out the card so long term not an issue, I’m just curious what could be causing the problem for future reference or any troubleshooting ideas.
Router/modem - Wireless-N compliant
Linksys USB adapter - Wireless-N compliant
dLink WDA desktop card - Wireless-G compliant.
