I am having problems withe certain internet pages over wirelss internet. Typically sites like hotmail, ebay, or yahoo mail will load the start page almost immediately but attempts to sign in, send mail or check account details will often not load at all and report 'interent connection problems'. My desktop, which has wired ethernet access through the same router, has no probelsm logging into and navigating all these sites. The wirelss signal is always good and the problem is present when the laptops are in the same room as the router. Has anybody any idea of a solution, please.
Yes, I've checked for firmware updates. I have also conidered interference from aneighbours wirelss within range of mine but since everything else loads quite speedily . . . . It is almost as if the wireless connection gives up before it gets though to the server. it's happening regulalry on trying to view sent messages on yahoo mail (with the wired connection there is again no problem)
I think it may be worth changing the MTU value for the laptops wireless card and see if this makes a difference...can't do any harm. If you advise your ISP I will tell you what value to try and how to apply it.
I can only find one mention of an MTU value of 1460 for EFH. It's possible to find out the exact value but the procedure can be fiddly, I think the best way to you to do this is to download TCP Optimizer from click here run the program and set the slider to your current connection speed. Select your laptops wireless adapter fro the drop down list and then hit Optinal settings.
Let me know how you get on. Any problems post back.
