    i have... XP pro. my sister has XP home. we live in the same house, but decided to go with wireless because we didn't know how to wire the house.

    i got netgear which works with aol.

    for over a year, it has worked fine. both computers could talk to eachother, everything.

    now, for some reason not only can we not see eachother's computers, but the wireless is going on and off intermittantly (sp). it will be fine for half an hour and then suddenly not be able to detect the network at all. i have been working between the two computers for two hours trying to figure out what is going on but it is driving me nuts.

    they both have the same workgroup. everything says they should be running but then i turn my back and poof.

    any help would be appreciated.
