Here's the problem: Girlfriend has a wireless router, SMC2404WBR, wireless barricade. The network card on her laptop is a DLink. Her room is right across from where the router is located, so theres no obstruction (such as huge lead doors, =P). But for some reason, her internet disconnects CONSTANTLY.... which is apparent from her log on/offs on her AIM. A message also pops up saying that her internet disconnects. The ISP she uses is Verizon, but that shouldn't be a problem since the other computer (which is hooked up via ethernet cable) works fine. First I uninstalled and reinstalled an older version AIM, thinking it wuz an AIM problem, but didn't fix anything. I only have 2 ports open.... for VNC connection, so I made the IP on her laptop static.... if that matters at all. Any suggestions? help please? Thanks in advance.
