Signal Strength: Excellent lousy internet connection
Posted on 2006-05-23
2 computers: Desktop and laptop. both running winxp SP2 with all updates.
The desktop is connected to the internet, so I made an Ad-Hoc network betwen them (manual IP is assigned, no DHCP).
I can connect without any problem, I get excellent signal strength, I can share folders and internet connection.
50% of the time I have problem with the internet, pages doesn't load, downloading is being stoped, etc. The wierdest thing is that, when I move 3 inch I get the connection again. then it works for a min and stops again. Then I move few inches again, trying to find the right place for "catching the radio waves", and so on (yes, within a hour I'm walking throu the whole house....).
All the time the signal strength is Excellent, Speed: 36.0 Mbps.
