Yesterday I tried to help someone with his wireless connection, but as usual, it's always a weird problem. I couldn't fix it, and hope by describing the problem, you have some options I could try tomorrow.
Since he changed his ISP, he can't wirelessly connect with his laptop to the router. When you put a cable in, it connect , then disconnect , connect, disconnect, etc. But on school, he says, it works fine.
- Router: Cisco EPC3925
- Windows Vista
- Other PCs with Windows XP work fine with cable.
What I noticed:
A lot of start up programs are on the machine. I disabled Hamachi. It says it has local connection but pinging to the router results in a time-out. After entering
ipconfig -release and
ipconfig -renew I get on IP.
With the cable of the other Windows XP PC, it still switches between connected and disconnected.
It has no static IP.
What I was thinking to do is bring my own laptop and try to connect and look if the Router is giving me an IP (DHCP) and run a virus scan on his laptop. I'll look in the router if it has MAC address filtering and try a static IP.
