Wireless connection problems, not receiving packets.
Heres my problem, when i sign in to my wireless, it says im connected but i receive very few packets. whenever i try to use a browser, no pages will load. but when i use my neighbors unsecured wireless i can access the internet and receive packets. im no techie but the only difference i could tell between the two, was that under properties, the working wireless was listed as open and disabled under network authentication and data encryption respectively. ive changed my firewall settings in norton and windows to allow my different browsers already and it seems like that cant be the problem if one wireless source works and another doesnt.

Re: wireless connection problems, not receiving packets.
Goto Network Connections >> Right Click on the wireless icon >> Properties >> Select IPv4(or IP for XP) >> Click on Properties >> Now see from your friend's system(in the same way) if here the details entered MATCH. The DNS entry shud match here.

The problem is might be your computer is CONNECTED,but there are no network activity so you're receiving no packets If you can't connected to the internet,then that network probably doesn't has an internet access on it
The problem is that the codecs used by VoIP IADs are designed to compress voice, not the analog signals sent and received by modems. In a VoIP Internet world, voice is first converted into packets and then they are sent over the connections that make up our our vast Internet. They may take slightly different times to arrive at their destination. In doing so some packets may be discarded, but the end result is that the receiving VoIP device has enough packets to make a clear and understandable conversation. We suggest these settings on a fax machine for faxing over VoIP; slowing the transmission rate down and allowing the machine to continue receiving the transmission even though a few bits of data were lost, then faxing over VoIP can become more consistent. Our suggestions in many cases can resolve issues that prevent faxing over a VoIP connection, but not in all cases. If after trying and making all the VoIP fax changes we suggest you still cannot fax over your connection then try a Internet Fax service.
For starters when the wireless card gets bad..usually you couldn't see the signal or nearby wireless broadcast.
I assume you can see it, because you said you got problems with packets.
it could be cause by many factors.
Wireless router misconfigurations, but the most common is interference.
If your wireless router is broadcasting in the same channel as ...lets say a cordless phone...your connection will be dropping frequently.
Also, neighbors using the same channel as well can cause the same problem.
Seems to me that the problem is in the wireless router, and not in your wireless card.
There are a number of choices to get it working so let's try one at a time:
Click start>run>type cmd to get to DOS prompt>then type ping 127.0.0.1. You should see some packets being sent and packets being received. This is to test that your network card is working. If you do not get any packets received then your network card is bad. If you do get packets received then let me know there are still a couple of options.
