Laptops are driving me nuts!!!!!!
How can 3 identical laptops with identical builds act completely differently?
I had 3 in class today, none of them would logon to the network initially.
The first one logged on locally and once the wireless had kicked in, connected to the wireless network straight away. This then could log off and back onto the network fine.
The second one logged on locally, the same thing happened as the first but then dropped out and sat there acquiring and address forever more.
The last one logged on locally and couldn't see any wireless networks, although when you passed you curser over the wireless symbol it said that it had an excellent signal from our wireless network.
All laptops have dedicated IP addresses which are reserved in DHCP so no-one else can use them.
They all use the windows wireless facility with windows zero configuration on.
I've tried letting DHCP allocate ip's but it doesn't make any difference.
The wireless seems slow to kick in on these because on most of them, after they have powered up and stood for a minute or 2, logon to the network fine.
Can anyone shed any light on this problem please before I throw half a laptop trolley through the window.:confused:
