Hi There,

I am currently running a home network via a wireless router. These are the nuts and bolts....

Router: DLINK Rangebooster G (WBR-2310)
Hardware Version: A1
Firmware Version: 1.05
PC 1 Operating System: Windows XP SP3
PC 1 Wireless Card: WUA 2340 USB adapter
Driver Version: 1.5.206.2 (12/06/2008)
PC 2 Operating System: Windows XP SP3
PC 2 Wireless Card: None (wired directly to router)

Here's the results of ipconfig/all

Windows IP Configuration

So, with all that information, here's the problem.

Periodically, the wireless computer will display the "Limited or no connectivity" warning in the tray.
Passing the mouse over the icon states that the signal strength is good but there is limited or no connectivity.
The drivers and firmware are as up to date as they can be, I believe.
It used to be that we could "repair" the connection from the PC and all would be good but now it seems all we can do to fix the problem is unplug the router and restart it. When the connectivity issue arises, I have tried typing in the router's IP but it is not found.

Just wondering if there's anything I'm missing. The reason I mentioned the network is that I believe the issue began when I established a home network with a wired PC, but I can't be 100% certain.

Any thoughts?
