Hi, I am looking for some advice. I have set-up a new wireless PC network. I have the base desktop PC, with the cable modem and linksys router. I am using a secure-broadcast signal.
I have been able to connect with multiple PCs to the wireless signal. Two different work laptops and one personal laptop. Upon the initial set-up, I used the key and have no problem find and keeping the connection.
On my the fourth computer I use to connect, I lose the connection after 30-45 minutes. I can reconnect 2-3 times before being unable to connect at all. Configuring the network connection will not hold the key and the key does not help when it does not want to connect.
All of the wireless PCs are not being used at once, they are all connecting at different times.
Yes, it is using the Windows wireless utility. I have cleaned all unused profiles out, leaving me 2 stored.
The distance from the router does not seem to be an impact. I have been in the same room as well as 2 floors above. It always recognizes the beacon and at worst has a "very good" signal, with the same result.
The fact that the profile will not keep the access key confuses me.
