I have a wireless network, but the desktop only connects to the internet when the laptop is on.

can i configure the connection so the desktop uses the connection when the laptop isnt there?

thanks

It sounds like a routing problem. Possibly your desktop is trying to route through your laptop. This may be because Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) is enabled, or simply you have set an incorrect IP address on your machine somewhere.

The easiest way should be to set your desktop to obtain an address automatically from your router.
