CD ROM disk drawer controlling wireless connection
OK, here is a strange one. I have an older HP desktop running XP. I keep it functional for "odd jobs" when I don't want to tie up another unit. Last night I wanted to rip a stack of CDs, so I called on this old timer. It is connected to my wireless network with a Linksys USB adapter.
Everytime I opened the drawer to load or unload a CD, I got a pop up message that the wireless connection has been lost. Within a few seconds after closing the drawer the connection was re-established. I'm sure this is just a resource sharing issue, but I thought it was curious enough to justify a post. I've certainly not seen a disk drawer cause problems before this, but it can happen. Cheers!
