Speedtouch4a0c2c wireless router for laptop - Help

  fratman 21:10 29 Aug 2007

I have got a speedtouch4a0c2c wireless router for my fujitsu siemens laptop and i am getting an internet connection. However most of the time the connection is only at about 20% (very rarely is on 100%)and keeps on losing signal so that internet pages dont come up and is very slow. The latop is mostly in my room which is three floors up , however when i bring it down and put it next to the router the signal strength is still the same at about 20%.
Is there anybody that can help me with this please? Thanks in advance

If it is vista, then untick IPv6 protocol in the wireless connection properties

I have checked what u said but there is no box to untick the IPv6 protocol anywhere else i can find this?

And my laptop is vista by the way.

Please stick to one thread...you have 3 running for the same problem.

Not sure what you mean fratman ... if you follow the instructions to uninstall ipv6 then you will no longer see any reference to it.

The instructions dont make sense though. I have unticked the box and then i dont really understand the bit it says after that.

Sorry, I uninstalled mine - maybe disabling still leaves references to it, and don't try the 2nd option unless you are competent at editing the registry as it can mess up the computer if done wrong. It must be something else - seems strange it is only 20% when right beside it - could be faulty gear ?
