    Morning all

    We are having a bit of a problem with our Wireless in the flat at the mo. We have 2 Windows Pcs and a new Mac, and it seems to be that whenever the Mac is connected to the Netgear router, neither of the Windows PCs can connect- could this be an IP conflict? If you need any more details, please ask and I will try to help.

    TIA

    Chris

    -Do you know, (I guess it is) if the router is running DHCP?
    -Can you provide the model of the netgear router?
    -Do the Windows PCs connect fine when the Mac is not connected?

    With both of the Windows machines connect, but NOT the Mac, let's see this for each of the machines.

    Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

    Type the following command:

    IPCONFIG /ALL

    Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
    Paste the results in a message here.

    If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

    Ok, for SpeakersRock,

    The model of the Router is the Netgear RangeMax WPN824, and both of the wondows computers connect fine when the mac is not on at all. Not sure about the DCHP stuff- how do I find that out?

    After you get the other ipconfig /all JohnWill asked for, can you connect the MAC and show us an ipconfig /all for one of the PCs that gets kicked off? It would also be good to see similar information from the MAC; I think the equivalent command is ifconfig, but I don't know what arguments or flags may be needed.
