View Full Version : Wireless Network Connection - wot's 'appenning

For about a week now, sometimes when I've started the laptop and the wireless Dynalink modem, they've failed to connect to the internet - the little sys tray icon says it's local only. I get round it by choosing "Diagnose and repair" and picking the"Automatically get a new IP address" option. Once the connection is made it doesn't, at the moment,drop out at all. All the equipment is sitting in it's usual place and I haven't built any brick or steel wars between the two.

So what's it a symptom of?

If you are turning off the ADSL router then, when it is turned back on, it will take a while for it to sync the ADSL connection and then connect to your ISP.
If you left the laptop for a while longer it should eventually say it has internet connectivity.

Hi Cyberbro

I don't think it's that - I'm allowing a lot of time (5 mins plus) for it to sort itself out
