There are no stronger or weaker cards (if your's is a 802.11g, which it most probably is unless its VERY old) can try changing the channel on your wireless router...

Wifi Signal Problem ???

You have the following options.

1. Move closer to the router

2. Purchase and install a wireless usb adapter that plugs into your usb port from Tiger Direct at:

3. Try using another client to manage your wireless. Usually there are 2 ways to manage your wireless on the laptop. You can use the software that came with your internal wireless card or you can use Windows (zero config) to manage your wireless. Which ever one you are now using, switch to the other. Open the software that controls your wireless and look through the tabs searching for where it will say something like "Let this tool Manage the Wireless" or "Let Windows Zero Config Manage the Wireless". Which ever one it is using switch to the other by checking or unchecking the box. Most times one will produce a better and stronger signal than the other.

I have a older Toshebia laptop with a wireless lan card that i'd like to update. Can I just download a driver update to apply to the Toshebia rather than buying a new card? Trying to get on-line?

Hi, In this case if you would like to upgrade the performance of your wireless card like to use a wireless connection with better signal strength or signal range then you would need to to purchase a wireless card to upgrade from the existing one however if you are looking to have the performance of the internet connection improved then all that you would need to do is update the wireless card drivers.
Thank you for your time.

Wireless is interrupted, slow, etc. No problem on IBM. Mac "loads" and "loads" etc., not large files. Just emails, etc.

The Airport icon on the menu bar shows the signal strength -- the more arcs are fully black, the stronger the signal. What signal is showing on your menu bar? Does the problem go away when you move your laptop closer to the wireless signal source? It's possible your Airport card is going bad, or your antenna inside the laptop has become disconnected (the one on my personal machine has disconnected itself twice; the fix was simple and fast but required opening the case).

Wireless networking problem

Access points receive the wireless signal and re transmit it again.
Once you enter the web interface of the access point, you would have to connect it to your wireless network. Once that is done, you should be able to connect to the same network , with a stronger signal , from your access point
Thanks Ranjit

I have a Toshiba L25 laptop and a D-Lin Air DWL-650 wireless card. I'm not getting the best connection with the wireless card while my other computer has a much stronger signal. I'd like a recommendation...

im assuming its a cardbus adapter right? well that model is a wireless b signal, which isnt very strong, so any wireless g model should have a much stronger signal. it doesnt matter which one it is, as long as its wireless g, which most new cards are. hope this helps, goodluck

Ibm think pad t30


To my knowledge, your laptop (IBM ThinkPad X30 2672) does not have any built-in WiFi. It's modes of connection are IrDA, modem, Ethernet, USP, Firewire aside from the regular serial & parallel. This would indicate that if you are wireless you either have a USB dongle or PCMCIA card. Please post back with your WiFi brand/model and your Operating System. Further, please post back likewise your WiFi AP/Router brand/model.

The message "a network cable is unplugged" pertains to the absence of a lan cable connected to your Ethernet port.

Good luck, kind regards and will await your second post.
