Connection drops?

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
I'm on a wireless network with one Laptop and sometimes another 2 or 3 PCs if were having some LAN play on CS. After everyone tunrns their machine off, my connection drops or if I turn my machine off and reboot or something like that, my WLAN utility will say no connection, then it will say network connection excellent and then disconnect again so I have to disable my LAN from in Windows and then enable it again?

    How is the wireless network operating? Do you have an access point?

    That's a funny one then. You shouldn't have to repair your wireless connection from windows unless the router dies for some reason whilst windows is still running.

    Found it. A program what I use called Protowall was blocking my machine from broadcasting to IANA to let the network know I'm online. Need to setup some exclusions & turn on the blocking notice. Cheers though.
