Question about Linksys WRT160N Wireless Router
My PC (Dell) is connected to a Router (LinkSys WRT160N) via ethernet cable. My Laptop (Dell) is a wireless connection and works fine. When the Laptop is on, the internet connection on the PC works fine. However, when the Laptop is off, the internet connection will not work on the PC. The only way to get around this is to directly connect the modem to the PC.
