Hey GTers, please help me out with something. I have the DSL line going from the modem to my wireless router and hardwired to my main computer, lets call it Computer #1. In another room, I have a secondary Computer #2 picking up the wireless signal via a PCI card. I havent set up a network yet. Both computers run Thunderbird for mail 24/7. Ideally, Id like mail to come in to both computers simultaneously so that I can work in any room I want. Thats not whats happening: . Computer #2 hogs the mail. It gets all of the incoming mail and Computer #1 only sees only a fraction of the mail. . If I turn off Thunderbird in Computer #2, then Computer #1 gets all the mail. Heres the funny thing with this scenario: If I read and trash/delete/empty all the mail in Computer #1, when I turn on Thunderbird in Computer #2, it gets all the same pieces of mail I just deleted in Computer #1. Why is that? I guess I dont understand whats going on to make an educated stab at a solution. You guys are smart, help me out here please. Edited to add: They both run XP Pro. Wireless system is Netgear 802.11b.
