|Hi all, I have a small problem with my signal strength, it does not |
appear to be the router's fault, but my pci adapter inside my
workstation, could someone help me diagnostic this please?
Router : Netgear WPN824 RangeMax v2
I have 3 laptops on the house, they all receive very good signal from
the router, always ranging from 3 bars (rare) to 5 bars, it usually stays
between 4 and 5 bars, which is great, connection rarely drops.
But on my workstation who is located right next to one of the laptops,
it receive between 1 bar to 3 bars and connection often drops. The
workstation is about 25-30 feets away from the router, not that far and
there's no wall between them, only a 10 feet corridor.
My network adapter on my workstation is a Belkin, this adapter came
with a wireless utility to manage my wireless connection which I use,
do I have to use Windows XP wireless connection manager instead?
My workstation ethernet adapter is a Belkin Wireless G PCI adapter,
driver version 126.96.36.199 (2007-11-08)
My router is currently configured on channel 6 and on g only mode. I
have disabled advanced 108Mbps feature and disabled eXtended
Range (XR) feature.
