I have started using Broadband, but I am having difficulties with Wireless LAN. I started using dongles, and have swapped them for PCI cards. The connection sometimes works, and sometimes not! Does anyone have any advice?
well, 20 feet shouldn't really be far enough to disrupt the service is there a microwave oven in your house? because even the slightest leak of power can totally mess up the connection. what's the actual model of the AP please, and where can i find the technical info on it thanks
you could try unplugging the microwave, see it that makes any differnce if its a 802.11b network (operating on 2.4GHz frequency) then even 1 watt of power leakage from the microwave can disrupt the signal
also, do you have any bluetooth devices in your house? bluetooth 'hops' all over the 2.4GHz many times per second, and that cause considerable disruption, hence the reason a lot of buildings that use 802.11b for WLAN have signs requesting that all bluetooth devices be turned off before you enter them
