Question about Linksys Ultra RangePlus Wireless Routr Router

1 Answer

Connection problems Hi, This might be a totally stupid question for me to ask but... Okay so I have two laptops and I want to be able to use both of them wirelessly but I bought a wireless router (linksys  wireless N broadband router) and went through the set up but now only one laptop can be used wirelessly and the other has to be connected to the router at all times. It can connect to the wireless network but the second I disconnect the ethernet cable hooking up the laptop and the router the connection is gone and I can no longer connect wirelessly. Is this normal? Is this a wicked stupid question? Is there anyway I can use both computers wirelessly or must a router always be attached to some computer?

Both laptops should work wireless without any problem,
check if you named both laptops de same, like "pedro"
need to make sure each laptop has a dinamic IP address setup,
check antivirus and ... that's it.
