    Hi everyone,

    Not sure if I am the only person who has come across this problem... My wifi on my Desire will disconnect if I have my Sony laptop connected to the wifi. It seems that my laptop steals the HTC's ip address.

    I don't really want to assign my laptop a static IP address.

    Does anyone have any ideas how to combat this? :mad:

    Ensure dchp is turned on on your router. Could also mean you need to change your channel

    Thanks! My router is administrated by my work and I cannot get access to the DCHP settings.

    I would imagine that the DCHP is enabled as I have 2 laptops, one HTC Hero, two G1's, an ipod touch and a printer all connected through wifi on the same router, and never had a problem before.
