Hello, I am wondering if anyone can tell me if there is any advantage to assigning IP addresses to the computers on my wireless network. I have a linksys WRK54G router and 2 desktops and 2 laptops on my network. All four are running XP. At least once or twice a week the network will drop one of my computers and I cannot get it connected until I unplug the router and then plug it back in. I am wondering if assigning IP addresses will help me avoid this problem.
Also one of my laptops is my work computer. If I assign it an IP address at home that is different than the one it uses to connect at my office, will I be creating additional problems for myself? Thanks for your help. Ken
