First, I'm running Windows XP SP3 on a dell laptop. The wireless card in it works perfectly fine.
When I run
ipconfig with the wire plugged in I get both connections displayed:
ipconfig Wireless IP Address: 192.168.1.101 Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0 Default Gateway: 192.168.1.1 ipconfig Wired IP Address: 192.168.1.100 Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0 Default Gateway: 192.168.1.1
When I have the cable disconnected I can ping my other computers and receive reply's
ping ComputerName ... Reply from 192.168.1.102: bytes=32 time=1ms TTL=128 ...
However, when the cable is connected it says:
ping ComputerName Ping request could not find host...
On the flip side, I can
ping 192.168.1.102 ... Reply from 192.168.1.102: bytes=32 time=1ms TTL=128 ...
My network is four computers plugged into a Linksys wireless router.
Any ideas why the wired connection does not recognize my computer names?
