Question about Edimax EW-7206APg (EW7206APG) 802.11b/g Wireless Access Point
My set up is like this:
Checkpoint Router (DHCP)
PC XP Pro-SP2 Edimax EW7206APg
2xlaptops (XP Pro-SP2) + 1 PC Vista SP1
Problem is that every so often, all the PCs lose connectivity between themselves. Internet connection works, but you can't "see" the other PCs (either wireless or hardwired) on the local network. You can't even ping their IP addresses. Resetting the AP clears the problem for a day or two.
All the PCs take their IP addresses from DHCP on the router. DHCP on the AP is disabled.
If there was an actual hardware problem with the AP, I'd expect it to disrupt internet service too, so it's quite baffling.
Edimax support advised me to update the AP firmware, and drivers for the wireless cards - but that hasn't helped.
Set all the PC's to have a manual IP rather then using the DHCP from the router.
Also set the Gateway and Preferred DNS on the network cards to the routers IP (IE 192.168.0.1)
