Network Geeks,

I am having a network problem that I hope someone can help with. My Alienware laptop recently started disconnecting my wireless connection when my ethernet connection is disconnected. Once I reconnect my ethernet connection, my wireless connection is reestablished. This does not seem to be an issue with the router persay. Other laptops can connect wireless to it without having to have an ethernet connection active. This makes using the laptop wireless features impossible at this time. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks for your help.
L. Leary
