Question about Dell Inspiron 5100 Laptop
We consistently have difficulty getting a good connection on this laptop (Dell Inspiron 5100) unless sitting directly below the antenna. My husband has no trouble with his laptop rooms away, and my neighbor can connect from her house. But my laptop rarely gets better than "low" connectivity. We now have a wireless router upstairs, connected to a booster which we keep on an open stair to cover the downstairs. I only get really good connection when I sit right below it.
Is it the PC? We had a NetGear card, and replaced it with something else, with the same results.
Yes its the computer I have a 5100 with 512MB of Ram and constantly have problems with it.Are you using the internal wireless card? I recommend the Linksys Srx400
