there are three type of wireless modes 1.b 2.g 3.n mb megabits MB for megabytes 1B=8b now the thing you have to check the wireless adapter your pc is using is able to connect with wlan b or wlan b\g or wlan n. speed of b<g<n and b/g<n
I'm sure this is a silly question, but there are two things 'the staples tech guy' may not have checked: 1) A wireless card has two connections on it, for the antennae. Did you make sure those connections are attached, so the antenna are properly connected? To access it, flip over the laptop, and unscrew the area covering the wireless card. There should be two little circles. One is called 'Aux', the other one says "Main"
2) Try booting from an Ubuntu disk, and see if it works there. If it does, then you know the issue is the driver in windows, and not the wireless card itself. To do that, go to ubuntu.com and burn a disk. Then turn on the computer with the CD inside of it. It should turn on ubuntu from the CD instead of from windows. If it works there, you know the issue is windows. If it continues to drop connections, then the issue is the wireless card.
Your laptop should have the drivers for th Wireless card. Assuming that you have a wireless card in your laptop. Browse for networks and see if it picks up your wireless network. If it does select it and browse.
If it doesnt then you have to have to go though other steps of troubleshooting.
I just bought one of these from Staples, $19. on the clearance rack. Before I opened it, I checked amazon.com reviews and this router is described as the worst piece of garbage anyone has ever seen. I think Bin Laden has a higher popularity rating than this thing. Hopefully Staples will give me my money back.
When you look on the box that the router came in, you have to look to see what Operating Systems it is compatible with. In many cases, routers will not be compatible with vista. I have a Linksys WRT300N, and it works great with Vista.Hope this helps.
Sometimes firewalls on your computers can cause connection issues. I had the same problem with my home network. I had norton internet security 2008 on both systems, but the firewall settings on both computers had to be adjusted to allow the computers to talk. If you have different brand firewalls on each computer, you should consider to switching one of the computers so that it matches the other.
Another thing you want to do is log into the router's web utility and check to see if the wireless settings are blocking wireless connections in some way. You also want to make sure the ssid broadcast is enabled.
Finally, you really should consider using security on your router, so wireless connections would be password protected. I suggest wpa personal.
