Hi,

based on the little information you provided, I suggest to do a complete virus scan. Also check how much free HD space you have left and how much RAM is installed. You may be running out of space for some reason. Clean the File Trash Bin as well.

It would be great if you could post what OS you are using.

Hope this helps.

I need to establish home network using my laptop as host


Are all the computers on you LAN running Vista? If so, (or even if not) which version?

Computer networks work best when the computers on those networks have a Network Operating System (NOS) installed, rather than a desktop operating system (OS). The best way to tell the difference is with the word PRO on the former or HOME on the latter.

Vista on home networks brings its own basket of troubles as well, particularly when connecting to non Vista computers.

Having laid all that out there for you, let's talk networks. You don't give many details, so, I'll make some assuptions based on new equipment (routers).

The best way to install a router, is to have the primary home computer connected via an ethernet cable. This allows the programming of the router to enable "cloning" of the MAC address. The reason to do this is so that the ISP (DSL or Cable company) will always appear that there is only one pc connected. This enhances your security.

Once that is done, the security feature can be adjusted on the router to either enable it, or not, and if you do (recommended) then write down your passphrase so that you can always remember it.

At this point, we are talking wireless, and if you are using wires, everything should already be functioning. With the wireless however, you will need to sit with your pc and tell the operating system to connect, then type in the security phrase when asked.

In XP, this is quite simple, by clicking on the wireless icon in the systray (down by the clock).

In Vista, however, you must first turn on network discovery. Right click on Networks, and choose properties. In the windows that opens, watch the information bar at the top, which should actually tell you network discover is not on, and to turn it on, click here.

Once the discovery is turned on, assuming that everything on your pc is functioning properly, you should see the network in the window, and be offered a chance to click on it to connect. Then type in your security phrase to connect to the LAN.

There is a lot going on with networks, and it is very difficult to help you set one up without a back and forth dialogue. I hope I helped you some.

good luck.

Check that your network is secured with a key, unsecured networks are easily hacked and can get very slow.

Try these first:

change channels to 1-6-or 11. Make sure you change all of your wireless computers1.gif.

check is to make sure you are NOT using "IEEE 802.1x authentication for this network."

You can find at setting under "Wireless Network Connection Properties" and then under "Authentication" tab of your network properties.

This particular authentication method is periodically logging you off the network and re-authenticating.

Check the adapter in device manager to make sure that windows is not shutting the adapter down to save power.

Cordless phones and wireless ethernet cards use overlapping frequencies.As a test, you can unplug the AC cords from all the cordless phones1.gif in the area and see if it helps.

Try going to the usb and the wireless adapter in device manager, properties. And make sure that the computer1.gif does not shut them off to save power.
Please let me know how you make out.
thanks
