View Full Version : laptop not responding

12-20-2007, 11:32 AM
when I am on the net at home, whatever websites I am on will stop loading or responding like every 5 minutes, then I have to close the laptop and sign in again, but I do not have this problem when I use my laptop at work

my desktop does not do this, it stays connected

it's getting very frustrating, any ideas?

mabey its your wireless conection at home?

that would be my first guess, first thing would be to try resetting the router and see what happens from there, or connect directly using a Ethernet cable and see if it kicks you off at home

My husband wanted to know if it is a work laptop...if its a work laptop there may be protocals on it interfering with the wireless at your home.

no not a work laptop, and i tried resetting the network adapter (disable and then enable), and turning both puters off and the router...... was good for about 1/2 and hour then I had to shut down again.....

this trouble shooting is over my head : (

Is your desktop on wireless....Does your laptop do this when it is plugged into the wireless...? meaning no longer using the wireless aspect. I am transposing this for myhusband he is the computer guy. Have you considered that it could be your wireless router? I know we had to get a new one because it would keep dropping the signal.

find the instructions and "change the channel" on the router
