Question about Toshiba Satellite M45-S265 Notebook
I have a Netgear router, 54 Mbps WRG614 and a Toshiba laptop Satellite M45-S359. Problem is that I connect easily at 54Mbps and sometimes after an hour or so the connection speed changes to a lower connection speeds all the way down to 1Mbps. It may go back up after a random amount of time or if I reboot it then immediately goes back to 54Mbps and works ok for a while and then it drops down again. I know it is not the router because I have two different Netgear routers (same model numbers) and the problem is idential with either router. I also have contacted Netgear and have changed the frequencies and still have the problem.
I suspect it is something with the laptop!
Can you help?
Assuming that it is a laptop issue, pls verify that in your Device Manager,/Wireless Adapter/Properties/ that:
1. Advanced - All Property Setting should be "Not Present" except for the Authentication if you use WEP or security key;
2. Power Management - uncheck "Allow Computer to turn off..."
Pls log down your current settings before changing so as to have a restore basis if things don't work out.
There might also be some other settings such as transmit power that could be changed to "always high" or something like that.
Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
