Can't use existing wireless network with a new laptop
Posted on 2007-07-30
I use a Toshiba A105-S2716 laptop running WinXP Home Edition to wirelessly connect to the internet through a Westell VersaLink 327W modem. I recently purchased another Toshiba laptop, a Satellite L35 running Windows Vista Home Basic.
I switched the wireless switch on and entered the modem information to enable the Satellite L35 to access the internet. The problem is that I only get limited connectivity. Sometimes I can get on the Web with the L35, but this connection never lasts more than minutes. I have no problems accessing, or maintaining access to, the internet with my A105-S2716 laptop.
What is the problem and how can I solve it?
