Hope you can give some advice for this annoying problem, I have a compaq laptop which i plugged in a wireless adaptor (linksys 2.4ghz) and installed it using the set-up disc.
I have a Speedtouch 576 modem with the built in router on my desktop and I have 1mb DSL hardwired to this.
Now, the laptop "finds" the speedtouch network, but it will not browse??? I took it to my friends computer shop and it works fine he uses a (linksys router, Incompatibility?) but here is the kicker, my friend came over and we switched off the modem to reset and it "found" the laptop on the network AND we got it to browse for a couple of seconds before it stopped again??? Ugh.
We have tried all the usual things:
a) Made network unsecure
b) made sure that the 10 digit security number was installed
Distance is not an issue (5ft) The frustating thing is it works at my friends store and to repeat my self we DID get it working well ....albeit for about 2 pages then it stopped.
I am at the point of either buying a "speedtouch" notebook adapter OR getting a linksys router, something I do not want to do.
But why would it , work well for a few seconds then stop?
