I'm sure this has been asked before, but I wasn't able to find it in a search. I am running WinXP on the two computers in my network. One is wireless, and one is wired. My router is the Linksys G. The wireless computer (using the usb wireless adapter) occasionally "loses" the internet, though it is still connected to the access point. I know the access point is still connected to the internet because the wired computer can always go online. It seems to be a sporadic problem, sometimes working and sometimes not. Usually after restarting the computer it "finds" the internet again, but not always. The wireless computer is a desktop, one floor above the router but only about 25 feet away from it. (according to the literature, I should be able to connect indoors up to 300 feet away) A further point of confusion is that sometimes I CAN view the internet even when it says "You are connected to the access point but the internet cannot be found." Is this a software problem? Do I need to amplify the signal somehow? This is my first foray into the world of networks. Maybe I'm just incompetent, but I didn't have this problem using the same equipment at my last apartment. Although back then my "primary use" computer was the wired one, and the wireless computer I used much less frequently, so I may not have noticed the issue.
