I am completely puzzled with this issue. When my friend's laptop crashes (usually from overheating), no matter what network he is on, the network will crash until his computer comes back online. This is particularly frustrating when we are LAN gaming and his computer overheats (because it is a crappy laptop) and everyone else playing completely loses connection to their servers.
A few notes:
- He is running windows 7 on an HPG70 laptop
- This occurs on ANY wireless network, N or G.
- This occurs even after a clean format, so I know it isn't a virus.
Does anyone have any ideas? I have no clue how this could happen since he is no longer connected to the network when his computer crashes....
