CONTINUAL DISCONNECTION OF WIRELESS CONNECTION There are a few things that can cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router. 1. Weak signal strength, check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move the wireless router away from brick or concrete walls and if possible locate the wireless router higher up. 2. Have you secured your wireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? i.e. change the default password, setup encryption use WPA2 or WPA, change the default SSID, and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC address filtering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s to connect to your wireless router. 3. You could be getting interference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, arc welders, washing machines etc. If so, the power supply to the wireless routers and computers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, better still connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply). 4. Check the channels of the wireless routers and access points in your area and change the broadcast channel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that is currently used but has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize interference with your wireless router from other wireless routers and access points in your area.
Hi There, It's certainly purely coincidence that your network cut out after installing ghostery. The program has literally nothing to do with your network connection, it's simply a browser add-on. The problem more than likely lies within your computer OS, either you've hit the wireless switch on your laptop (turn it back on) or (Fn+F8) or you've mangled your internet connection settings in your firefox options. If all else fails, try removing the power plug from your router for 30 seconds, plug it back in and allow it to boot fully.
If you get a 'Limited connectivity" on you wirelessconnection on your laptop, it means that the wireless card on your laptopprobably did not get an IP address from the wireless router. To fix this problem, right click on the wireless icon on the Task bar and thenclick Repair. This will force the wireless router to issue a IP address to the wireless cardon the laptop.
we need model number of the laptop please mdw 500s i cannot find listed. If its the same as the nx 500s then ddr 333 is required (200 pin sodimm modules) for wireless they installed Intel® PRO/Wireless IEEE 802.11b/g network card, Mini-PCI Pentium® M models only)
Broadcom IEEE 802.11b/g network card, Mini-PCI (Celeron™ M models only)
Norton is the problem, try and update your wireless drivers. If this doesn't work, go to the device driver and uninstall the wireless card, reboot the machine and that will force windows to load a fresh driver to the card. If windows asks to search windows update, allow it and let it complete the install, while you are doing this make sure you are connected to the router via a cable. good luck. If none of that works, you may try going to Norton and getting their Norton Removal Tool, this is the only way to truly rid the computer of this program and Norton has been known to "out of the blue" make wireless useless.
The 802.11 protocol is for wireless adapters. If your is 11MBs, it is a b card. Buy a g or n card to achieve the 54 MBs you want. Be sure to uninstall the b card and software before you install the new card.
Good luck, and please let me know how this works out for you.
The particular wireless card that comes stock in those laptops is horrible. I work for a school district and we have 10 of those laptops in a school library with a wireless access point. They constantly lose connection, don't get an IP address and generally don't work well at all.
We have tested everything we can and have narrowed it down to the fact that that particular wireless card is a piece of junk. We are currently outfitting all of those laptops with new PCMCIA Wireless cards. We tested a single laptop using a new card in the slot and disabled the internal wireless. After that was done, the laptop worked like a charm.
For a comparison, we have other laptops in that same library that have an Intel wireless card instead of the Dell one. They have always connected fine and with no issue to the same Wireless Access Point that the Dell wireless has problems with.
