Connectivity very poor or nonexistant
Posted on 2004-11-28
I'm using a Toshiba Tecra 8000 laptop (366 Mhz CPU and 128 MB RAM) with a PCMCIA
D-Link wireless card, DWL-G650 HW ver C2 and FW ver 3.1.6 on an ISP that supports 366 Mhz CPUs.
The laptop is about 2.5 feet away from the router, D-Link model DI-624 with HW: ver. C1 and FW ver. 2.42
About 4 weeks ago upon initial installation connectivity was good.
For the past 3-4 weeks connectivity has been so poor and intermittent that I purchased a D-Link ethernet PCMCIA adapter.
Connectivity is great when I direct connect to the modem. But I want to be able to use my laptop out of the house and use the wireless internet access capabilities.
Do you have any ideas on how I can resolve the problem?
My desktop PC accesses the web just fine when cabled to the wireless router.
