I have a HP Compaq 8710p laptop computer that I use at home and work. The computer is windows xp pro. When at home I am using cable modem to access internet, and when at work I use Verizon pc card to access internet.

The problem is when using Verizon pc card, I keep getting booted after about 30 minutes of use. I call their tech support which replied that the problem is my computer is assigning an ip address that is bleeding over to their network causing it to boot me off. The ip address that they said is causing the issue, is an ip address for my router that is at home. (It is not connect when I am at work). Verizon's solution was pay an computer tech to scan my computer for windows issues that is causing the ip address to bleed over.

Does anyone know how to scan for the problem?
Does this sound right?
Can Verizon assign a manual ip address to keep from having the problem?

I do not understand how this can be occurring, and I would still want to connect with my router when at home.

I beleive this is issue with verizon and they do not want to own up to it. Also my signal stength is strong.

I'm personally of the opinion that Verizon is just trying to extract some green from your wallet. :rolleyes:

Have you tried disabling the wireless connection when you're not using it to see if that changes the symptoms?

Let's see this when connected using the Verizon wireless and in the location where you experience the problem.

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD to open a command prompt:

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following command:

Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

IPCONFIG /ALL

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter to copy the contents to the clipboard.
Paste the results in a message here.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

Well, that IPCONFIG clearly shows you're connected to a wired connection, and the Verizon card is nowhere in sight.


I need to see this in the problem configuration.

Still in the problem configuration, please do this.


Try these simple tests.

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD (COMMAND for W98/WME) to open a command prompt:

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands one at a time, followed by the Enter key:

NOTE: For the items below in red surrounded with < >, see comments below for the actual information content, they are value substitutions from the previous IPCONFIG command output!

IPCONFIG /ALL

PING <computer_IP_address>

PING <default_gateway_address>

PING <dns_servers>

PING 206.190.60.37

PING yahoo.com

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter to copy the contents to the clipboard.
Paste the results in a message here.

<computer_IP_address> - The IP Address of your computer, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above.

<default_gateway_address> - The IP address of the Default Gateway, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above.

<dns_servers> - The IP address of the first (or only) address for DNS Servers, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

That appears to work just fine with full connectivity. You are pinging Internet sites by name.

I've never heard of "address bleeding over", and I think this is just a smokescreen by Verizon to get rid of you! You don't have a connection to either of those other interfaces, so I can't see how anything "bleeding over" could be happening.
