HelloI have a packard bell PC running XP Pro SP2 and a laptop running on Windows 2000. Broadband is with TiscaliSometime ago I bought a 3COM wireless router , PC card for the latop and the USB adapater for the PC.The signal strength for the laptop is always near 100% anywhere in the house although on rare occasions it does lose its link, but this rare as I use the laptop for overnight downloads.However with the PC it always loses it connection I cant be connected for more than 30mins before it loses it link the signal strength is always 40% to 60% .The laptop can be in the spare room with 90 % to 100% but the PC is 40%When the PC loses it connection and then reconnects a message comes up saying looking for MAC connection.1) How can I improve the signal strength of the PC2) How do I stop the PC from losing its connection.Thanks for your help.
Does the USB adapter have a seperate arial that you can move.
hi, thanks for your reply,Ive checked the USB adapter and there is no aerial.
Is the PC near any other electrical appliences as this can cause interference, a friend has a USB adapter but it has a seperate arial on a lead which he can move around to get the best reception.
Have you checked on the tiscali website help section?Have you updated the software?It could be a firewall problem, what are you running?Is there a compatibilty probelm with Bt and the 3com product? Call BT and Ask.
