  1. Wireless connection issue: Ping stops after a few "Reply From" messages

    Hi there,

    I have a laptop and a PC with WLAN. I setup an adhoc network between
    them and given static IPs to them (PC 192.168.2.1 and Laptop
    192.168.2.9) . I see :Wireless Network Connection is now connected"
    message in the system tray.

    Then I ping from PC to laptop. I see successful ping messages for a
    few number of times (like 15-20 times) and then pings starts failing
    saying "Request timed out". Then nothing can help. If I reboot the PC,
    again ping works for sometime and starts failing again.

    I think the issue is with the PC where a DLink USB WLAN adpater is
    connected. I tried adhoc netowrk between this laptop and another
    laptop and it worked fine. So it should be PC.

    Needless to say, everything was working fine for last one year. This
    has suddenly comeup now.

    Please help, its been 2 days since I have been struggling with the
    problem.

    Hi
    I would try another Wireless card.
