    Wireless incompatible with 2 laptops

    Hey guys,

    I have 2 laptops and a smartphone at my home connecting to the wireless network. The internet connection on both will work only as long as the other laptop is not accessing the internet simultaneously. If both the laptops are trying to access the internet simultaneously then the internet will not work on either. To brief you on the setup, I use a telephone line internet access which goes into my D-link ADSL 802c router which is connected to the Cisco e1000 wireless router.

    Both the laptops are set to obtain ip address automatically. The adsl router works on 192.168.1.1 and has a username and password setup within the router itself. Since the adsl router is on 192.168.1.1, I was adviced by a friend to switch the Wireless router to 192.168.5.1 so that the ip addresses do not clash. However it did not help. Also the ISP asked to keep a particular DNS and Preferred DNS. In order to avoid feeding this in each laptop, I changed it directly in the wireless router. The wireless router is on the DHCP mode.

    I have tried resetting multiple times and tried using a static ip and even tried using fixed ip address on my laptops but it does not help the cause.
    Any ideas what is wrong or how I can fix this.

    Wireless test file uploaded for more details on current network.
    Please Any help is appreciated.

    All your network addresses should be in the range 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.256. 192.168.5.1 will be seen as part of a different network.

    If I change my wireless router's ip address in that range meaning 192.168.1.xxx I lose internet access completely. The only way it works is if the ip address of the wireless router is not in the 192.168.1 range. Any ideas. Also I have entered a manual DNS server in the ADSL modem as per the specifications of my ISP.

    Networking is an arcane art in my opinion. All I know is that my network has all it's addresses in that range. My router has 192.168.1.254 as it's address and all the others are below that. Also the subnet mask is set to 255.255.255.0 for all devices connected. My ISP is BT (InfinityI) and all devices are set to DHCP except one laptop which always loses internet connection in this mode because it changes the ip address to a different range. Make sure you have set up the correct range for DHCP in your router - any address outside this range will not get internet access.

    Hmm. Second that. All the DHCP is in the correct range. Have fed the DNS servers in the ADSL router instead of the wireless. Seems to be working well for now. Thanks for you help
