Windows 7: Wireless connection problem

Well, I just thought I would chime in with an update on my problem.

Assigning static IP's to each one of my wireless systems seems to have done the trick. Haven't had any orange asterisks on my network icon since doing that.

So if anyone else is having wireless connection issues, I would recommend assigning static IP's before doing anything else.

Thanks to everyone here that chimed in and helped out...

Is IPv6 still on or off?

Are you using HomeGroup?

Silly question, but how do you assign a static IP??

Thank you.

Start>Control Panel>Network & Sharing Center>Change Adapter settings

And btw, this actually still hasn't fixed my issu 100%. I still randomly have to reset my router but only happens maybe once a week instead of a few times a day.
