Wireless Network Connectivity Issue
Posted on 2007-08-01
I am trying to use wireless networking with my laptop in hotel rooms. I have a 2 year old Toshiba laptop running WINXP Home Edition. I have an Intel processor with 1.3 GHz and I have 224 Ram. I have no problems connecting using dial up or DSL. This laptop came with an Atheros AR5004G wireles network installed which, according to Windows, is working properly and it has been in several locations with wireless networks but never detects them. Then I purchased and installed a Netgear 108 Mps Wireless PC card. It detected networks, but although the signal was strong I couldn't open a brower page. I was at Starbucks where I got the TMobile signal quite strongly and received no error messages but the web page wouldn't load nor could I send or receive email. I can connect with dial up as I said so I don't think the problem is with any browser settings.
