My power options have been set like that. I have done alot of research on this myself and it just doesn't seem to make a difference. Any research or answers on your end will just make my day, week, month!!!!

Thank you so much for your help!!!

I just look at my eventvwr on my hard wired machine and got this message:

Event Type: Error
Event Source: ipnathlp
Event Category: None
Event ID: 30005
Date: 3/9/2006
Time: 9:44:24 AM
User: N/A
Computer: DEFAULT
Description:
The DHCP allocator has detected a DHCP server with IP address 192.168.1.1 on the same network as the interface with IP address 192.168.0.1. The allocator has disabled itself on the interface in order to avoid confusing DHCP clients.

For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft....link/events.asp.

Every message I have seems to point to this dhcp. Should I disable it? What happens when I do disable it?

Thanks guys,
Susie

Hi Susie,

Is there any chance that you could edit your first post, and remove that Network Diagnostic? Heh, it's just that I don't like scrolling down so far :tazz: Thanks.

I'm going to suggest setting up a Static IP for this computer, as it might help, and if not, it can't hurt. Please goto Start --> Run --> type CMD and press OK --> then type: IPCONFIG /ALL - please post the results here by right-clicking on the Command Prompt window, selecting 'Select All', pressing the Enter key, and then posting on this forum. Alternately, you can save your information to a text file by using the following command: IPCONFIG /ALL > C:\ipconfig.txt -- navigate to that text file, and copy/paste the information from it.

With this info, it'll be alot easier for us to walk you through the process.

Thanks,
Dan.

I did what you said Dan on the wireless computer but the LAN is not connected on my wireless should i have done this on my wired PC. All a little confusing!! I did tis on my wired connection as well but on my laptop it still says :local Area Connection Network cable unplugged Broadcom 44x 10/100 Integrated Controller.
With this said the Lan does not connect on the laptop but it did on the wired. The laptop is connected through a wireless connection network. I hope you understand this post :tazz:

Thanks,
Susie
