I'm connected via ADSL with a Netgear DG834G router in the UK. Previously I had the 2 pcs connected via RJ45 and my laptop via wifi. That all worked perfectly. We wanted to get rid of the 2 network cables so I got 2 Belkin pci wifi cards to go in both the pcs. Now I'm having trouble. I can find the wireless connection and my WEP key is accepted ok. 1 system will connect ok. As soon as another makes a connection, the first one suddenly drops. It tries to reconnect and gets stuck at the "acquiring network address" stage. I've tried setting all the pcs to both automatic and manual DNS with the same results. The router is also running the latest firmware. When I loose the connection and I plug in my old RJ45 cable, i'm fully connected in less than a second. What the hell's going on?
