    Hello everyone.
    My friend have a proble. He has wireless router. 1st computer is
    connected thru cable, and the second one wireless. While the 1st one
    is turned off, the second one can't access router. I didn't see this
    by myself yet. It just what he described me. I going to check on it on
    Tuesday. If you have any suggestions what can it be, please give me
    some advises.

    If the "wireless" PC is connecting through a router, post the make and
    model of the router.

    My friend yesterday told me this is Linksys BEFSR41. This is no
    wireless router, so he's got (like he said) wireless connection, so it
    has to be Bridge connection (now his problem is obvious). I'm gonna se
    it tonight.

    After he descriped me problem by phone it looked like that.
    I was there on Tuesday, and the situation is very different. He's got
    Verizon DSL (on my experience - the worst ISP in USA). He already
    changed his Westel 6100 DSL modem a month ago. This one is working,
    but sometimes loosing connection. When I connected it straight to PC,
    after 10-15 minutes it finally get connected to internet. When it is
    connected to Router (linksys BEFSR41 ver 3.4) to connect to internet
    is getting almost half an hour.
    I think router is configured right (IP 192.168.2.1).
    I called Verizon twice. What was their answer? If you want to have
    network with Verizon DSL, you should buy from them DSL modem/wireless
    router fixture. Two representatives told me, if I have two fixtures
    with different names (Westel / Linksys) it's not gonna work. What a
    bulshit.
    This guy's DSL service ends in March 2008. I told him - get yourselfe
    Cable.

    Actually, it's probably not as desperate as you make it sound. But it's
    certainly not the sort of trivial pursuit you seem to imply.

    It's pretty important to have some understanding of IP and how it works
    to find meaningful facts, troubleshoot things, and make judgments. IMHO

    On understanding IP, if you can partition the problem, you have a
    chance; if not, it's all smoke visible here.
