I have a D-link router and a laptoop (with a wireless card) and a DESKTOP (with a 10/100 PCI card).
For some reason, when I boot my DESKTOP I cannot connect to it from my laptop.
When I first boot the DESKTOP and look at the Properties of the Local Area Connection the Address Type says "Automatic Private Address." Then after about 20 minutes it changes to "Assigned by DHCP." At that time I am able to connect to the DESKTOP.
Does this show what my problem is and would anyone have an idea how to fix it so it stays at "Assigned by DHCP?"
