|My Toshiba Satellite (C655-S5049) with Atheros wireless works just fine at my home and a number of public wireless locations (Panara Bread, libraries, school, etc.) There are many other public wireless locations where I try to connect and just get an "unable to connect" dialog box which gives me the options to "diagnose connection problem" (blames the access point), or to "get help" which pretty much tells me that help isn't available because I'm not connected to the internet.|
The places that work, work consistently. The places that don't work, I've never been able to get in even though people around me are online with their machines.
I'm running thie machine pretty much as it was delivered out of the box. I've installed AVG for virus protection, and I have all the default protection settings (firewall, sharing, etc.).
Any help is appreciated!
