Hello.

Up until a couple of days ago, I was having problems with constant self shutdown on a Thompson modem (supplied by ISP) and a Linksys router. My tech guy at the local PC store advised me to replace the two units with a Billion 5200G all in one unit.

Now I have a whole new problem that my tech guy is at a loss to help me with, and I wonder if perhaps someone here can help out.

The Billion unit works well on my Windows XP desktop - right up until I connect my Windows 7 laptop - at which point the desktop drops its connection and gives the IP address of my desktop to the laptop. Both machines were set to dynamic IP - my tech guy suggested that I set the machines to static IP addresses within the routers range. Upon doing this, neither was able to connect to the web, so I went back to dynamic IP with the same problem again (desktop works until laptop is connected).

I then had the XP machine connected with the laptop not connected, and connected my iPod via WiFi - again, the router gave the iPod the same IP address as the desktop and the desktop again dropped out.

HELP! I'm at my wits end with this problem, but do not want to go backwards and plug the Thompson back in.....
