Laptop dropping IP address


Birmingham

Likes # 0

Hi,

A few days ago, my internet connection kept dropping. So, I switched off for the night and as I did, Service Pack 3 downloaded. Since then, whenever I have switched on, a connection has been made which lasts a few seconds, then it drops the IP address.

I have tried disabling the connection and then reconnecting, reinputting the WEP key, but it still won't hold onto the address.

My daughters' laptops are not experiencing this problem.

Anyone got any advice?

Many thanks & kind regards.
