wireless connection problem

zc2 asked
Last Modified: 2013-12-09
I have two wireless devices made by D-Link. One is DI-524 Wireless Broadband Router and the other is DWL-G700AP Wireless Access Point. They are in different locations.
My pocket PC (at&t Tilt aka HTC Kaiser) works perfectly with the access point at 54Mbps, but with the router, the Rx rate is always only 1Mbps, and the connection breaks often.
I tried to use different channels, and different settings, but usually the changes make things worse, never better.
(For instance, updating ROM on the router made it reboot every few seconds, so I did a roll back to the factory one.)
The other wireless nodes work with the router relatively well (connection drops time to time, though)

What can I do except throw out the router and buy another one?
