wireless connections will only allow one computer at a time

May 24, 2012 at 11:45:31
Specs: Windows 7
Had laptop connecting wirelessly perfect with no problems. We then added another laptop and PSP 3 to the house hold. Any of the 3 devices will connect to the internet via wireless but ONLY one at a time. If you are connected with one and turn on one of the others it will kick the one off that you were on and only 1 device can use wireless at a time? any suggestions/help would be great. Thank you

Do they get the same ip address?
Did you engage QoS on the router?
rebooted the router?

The QoS question was did you setup Qos which apparently you have not so its not an issue.

Question concerning same ip address was for you to check each device to see if its getting the same ip address as in your routers dhcp is only providing one ip address hence only one piece of equipment can connect at one time.

Who setup the router?
What make and model is it?
Has this ever worked to have multiple devices connect via wifi?

Wireless router should hold up to 4-6+ devices... If your ip-address is the same for both devices, then change it under network connection properties... while youre doing that.. get http://www.opendns.com/ as well.. Your router will only have one ip-address and two devices shouldn't have the same ip-address.

If both of your devices ip-address are not the same, just restart your router, if that doesn't work, then go to your router config [explorer>192.168.XXX.XXX>login>change your wireless pass or username then refresh]. Make sure your wireless setting are correct.
