Question about Dell Latitude 100L Notebook
I have a two laptops and latitude 100l and a inspiron 1150. Basically the same laptop. Both of them get really low wireless signals. I can be 10 feet from the router and get a 5 mbps signal. I can plug a netgear wn111 wireless card and get a 54 mbps signal from the same spot in the house. I have changed channels and tuned up my router with all the tricks I have found on the internet. Nothing seems to be working. Does anyone else have this problem. Or better yet does anyone know a fix.
Thanks in advance.
P.S. I have checked the connections at the wireless cards and they are secure. Also both laptops have different wireless cards.
The particular wireless card that comes stock in those laptops is horrible. I work for a school district and we have 10 of those laptops in a school library with a wireless access point. They constantly lose connection, don't get an IP address and generally don't work well at all. We have tested everything we can and have narrowed it down to the fact that that particular wireless card is a piece of junk. We are currently outfitting all of those laptops with new PCMCIA Wireless cards. We tested a single laptop using a new card in the slot and disabled the internal wireless. After that was done, the laptop worked like a charm. For a comparison, we have other laptops in that same library that have an Intel wireless card instead of the Dell one. They have always connected fine and with no issue to the same Wireless Access Point that the Dell wireless has problems with.
