|I have recently bought a new Acer laptop & am having all sorts of difficulties connecting wirelessly to the internet.|
I have a Netgear DG834GT router which is also wired connected to PC, PS3 & XBOX360 - the router is situated near my amp, game consoles & PV box.
When trying to connect via laptop, I am sat around 6 feet away…… sometimes it will connect first time but then drop out minutes later & then I am unable to connect again. Sometimes I can connect again but will continue to drop out again & again. & then sometimes I cant connect at all.
I have moved router to more central position in room - no difference
I have changed to all available channels on router - no difference
I have switched off all security on router - no difference
I have switched off all AV equipment (ie TV, PV box) - no difference
I have moved laptop right next to router - no difference
I have pulled hands free phones power from mains - no difference
I have checked power settings on laptop - no difference
Tried using Netstumbler but was unable to see any other ID's ( I don't think it's compatible with adaptor ?)
When connected I am getting a d/l rate of around 2 mb/s (my wired PC gets around 3-4mb/s)
I assume it's something to with interference (??) but can anyone help
