Ok...I have two desktops.
Bedroom...vista ultimate
Livingroom...xp pro
The bedroom is connected to the router, the livingroom has a linksys "wireless bridge" connected to it.
This connection has been working great for about a year and in the past week or so the livingroom pc loses connection. I can reconnect the bridge..sometimes it connects or not.
Sometimes a restart works..sometimes not..you get the picture.
I have upgraded my lan drivers and right now dont really know what else my options are since I dont really know whats causing the outage....thoughts?
thanks

My guess would be wireless interference. A microwave, cordless phone, even ceiling fans can affect a wireless signal. Have you recently brought home any new appliances such as those?

No, dont have a land line, microwave is used once a day maybe, no ceiling fan ect. Very odd, just had to unplug/plug the bridge so i could post this.
