Re: College connection
Ok, sorry for not checking back to my post.
Question 1. One signal from the isp is coming into our network. Then we have around 4 routers sending out the wireless signal to each hall. But the fact that it is wireless is irrelevant.Because this same thing happens when i plug in as well.
Question 2. Yes we have to connect to the wireless router, or plug in. THEN we have to dial up to the isp.
Question 3. Its not so random anymore. I notice a correlation between loosing a wireless connection/or unplugging the cable, and getting the error when trying to reconnect.
Question 4. I have TWO computers. One has xp pro, one has vista home premium.
I have learned since my initial post that this is not a 2 mb connection coming onto this campus. It is a 512kb.(i know, amazingly ridiculous)
So while i was typing this post, a thought just popped into my head that may or may not make sence. Is it possible that when i get disconnected. That while im trying to reconnect there is just too many people connected to the main router? Or that the network admins are restricting the amount of people accessing the network?
By the way i had already checked out that page that you suggested.
