I just got a laptop and I am using a Realtek wireless card. when i boot up my pc it connects to the internet, but then it kicks me right off. and then goes on and off. and sometimes it gets an ip conflict but most of the time it just kicks me off and then goes up one ip. ex(192.168.1.119)kicks off..goes back on with this numbe ending in (.120). I also have a desktop with wireless pci. and it kicks me on and off at the same time it does for my laptop. It has different ip addys and everything. but then like after it sits for a while it starts working fine.. weird but if i reboot it happends all over again.
im running on channel 6...any suggestions or correct wireless options i should  have configured.

It's a good idea to setup up the wireless card without security and than add on cause I have run into problems myself at customers houses. So, from now on I make sure it's working and than I enable all the security.

Some other things to look at...

For W2/XP systems
1.) Check the encryption,WEP,SSID and see whether you laptop can keep up with the router at that level,you might need to lower the encryption bits and/or disable the security all together to troubleshoot the problem defining the frames.
1.)Check the Power Management of the Wireless Card in the device manager and see whether it is set to "on-highest (not AUTO)"
1.)See the Wireless Zero Configuration Service in Start>Control Panel>Administrative Tools>Services>(Expand the page-Scroll down)WZC and be positive on Service's being enabled and started (you might need to stop/start and disable/enable the service)
1.)Restart (cold boot/hard shutdown if possible with the power button) the laptop/Re-set the router (NOT unplug-plug back!Press on the reset needle button/regular buttton for 5 secs until the LEDs blink)



Just a thought...

Let us know

Not sure whether this would cause the problems your getting but you caould also always change the channel. Several household items can conflict with the wireless devices and you may of picked a dodgy one. I think in the US you have 11 channels? try one of the other 10!

If your getting and IP conflict it is because all the vendors that ship AP's or home routers don't make a note to you that you should adjust the network address of the router.
Basically if your AP\Router is serving up 192.168.1.x and so is your neighbour you can end up having ip conflicts. Resolution is to change your network address, you can do this in the config of the AP\Router by changing the 192.168.1.x to something like 192.168.20.x

This user is using either B or G which runs on 2.4ghz wavelength, on the 2.4 wavelength their are only 3 useable channels 1,6,11. By running on the channels in between you will get interference.

furthermore their shouldn't be ip conflicts with internal address ranges due to you and surrounding wifi networks having different SSID's (as well as MAC addys) You do however need to change the SSID out of the box.
