    Hi,

    I have a network with up to a dozen computers at any one time.
    All have static ips
    Most are wired.

    The prob is between 2 wireless computers.
    If I run both comps with windows xp, all is fine.
    But 1 of the pcs is often booted from a live (Puppy) Linux cd.
    When I boot using Linux, both of these pcs start dis/reconnecting to the network, every few minutes.
    The nics both have different macs, & they are both assigned their own static ips correctly.
    Another wireless pc on the network is not affected.

    Any ideas why the disconnects & how to solve this prob?

    PS. I am using a Netgear 824 router.

    Thanks for any replies

    Rob

    The Windows experience indicates that the adapters and router can communicate fine and there is little or no interference. So, in general, it sounds like a driver problem. However, I have no confidence that I can be of help beyond this general statement. :(

    What brand/model/version of wireless adapter? From where did the driver come? What encryption are you using?

    What version of Puppy? If not the latest (4.1.1) you might try that one.
