Question about NetGear WGT624 Wireless Router
During use, my laptop will seemingly randomly lose connection with my router.
This is common with many manf. of routers. I have had the same issue. Are you running WEP? If so that's probably the culprit. For some reason, IEEE allowed more than one hash routine to get out there in the field, so sometimes if you have varying brands end-to-end, they can generate the hash-to-value a slight bit differently. So either a)Disable WEP b)Get netgear PCMCIA on laptop c)Move closer or change string in your WEP key to ONLY include 0-9 a-z d)Get a repeater. (Either netgear or brand of laptop WLAN NIC) Hope this helps. (I ended up disabling WEP as MAC filter and SSID turned off are sufficient enough for home use security.)
