|My home wireless network is supplied by a 2wire 3801HGV on AT&T U-verse.|
About 30 feet away, around a corner and through a wall, I have two wireless adapters connected.
First, I have a Lenovo laptop W520. Second, for my desktop, I have a USB adapter - Medialink MWN-USB150N.
When I move the desktop USB adapter right next to the laptop, both will vary greatly in performance.
If I drop to a mid or low wireless channel, the laptop sees huge ping times and packet loss. On these channels, the USB wireless adapter works fine.
If I switch to a high wireless channel, the results switch, so the laptop is fine but the wireless adapter (for the PC) now suffers greatly.
What can be done to resolve this issue? I would be fine with buying a new wireless adapter for my dekstop, but I don't know how to differentiate based on my issue, nor if that would solve the problem. Thanks!
