I have wildblue and my connection will not consistently connect . It freezes up the computer running xp wireless router is WNR854T
With wireless connections, there are at times brief disconnects. If you set your computer's ip address to a fixed value, this may help the problem. With a DHCP connection (not fixed) you could be getting a different address after one of the temporary disconnects causing the hang. Go to control panel, network connections, properties, then scroll down the window to the tcp/ip line , highlight it, then click the properties button. In the properties, click the use ip address button, enter a fixed ip address. If you are using a standard home address system, use 192.168.1.10 (if you have more than one computer, make sure each address is unique). subnet mask is 255.255.255.0, gateway is your router ip address, typically 192.168.1.1. Check your router information to be sure. You can use your router ip for the DNS server ip. If that does not work, check the DNS address provided in your router settings. Save all the settings.
See how that works, if it works, please leave feedback.
