Question about Computers & Internet
I took my older XP PC wireless this week with a new Belkin Wireless G Desktop Network Card.
For the first day it had no trouble at all connecting at full 802.11g speeds to our Speedtouch Wireless Router. Then it suddenly stopped connecting, with a message that the router was out of range and I should move it closer or readjust the antenna.
I refreshed the network from the PC control panel and all was well again.
The next day it again stopped connecting with the same message, and refreshing the network didn't fix things.
The router is NOT out of range. It's 4 meters away and only barely around the corner of an ordinary house wall. We even moved the router to be in line of sight with no change in the message.
The antenna on the network card is properly screwed in and raised upright. The lights on the card show solid green and flashing orange.
What can we do to fix this?
The best reccomendation I might make is to stop using the manufacturer's proprietary management software. Use Windows' own built in wireless management. You can select this by selecting the network adapter in the 'network connections' control panel and checking the box that says 'let windows manage this device' That should fix the problem. Also, try getting the most recent updates for both windows and the network adapter.
