Question about D-Link DI 514 Wireless Router (DI-514)
I hope that this is indeed a "wireless router problem" that I am experiencing! My internet service provider is Cox Highspeed
Internet and I recently upgraded my laptop to a Dell XPS M1330 that had Windows Vista factory installed. I have a DLink DI 514 wireless router.
Prior to using this new computer, I had a Dell Latitude lap top with Windows XP.
Here is the problem .... with my old Dell Latitude, I was able to connect
anywhere in my home to the Internet in a very quick and always reliable manner. It did not matter if I was upstairs (the router is downstairs), on the sun porch (about the fartherest point from the router downstairs in my home) or even outside in my yard.
However, since using my new laptop, I am almost always unable to get the the Internet unless I am sitting immediately in front of the router. I always get a message that I am connected and that I have a signal of "excellent" strength, but it either takes forever to bring up an Internet page or I get a message that says that it is unable to connect to the Internet. I never ever had this problem with my old 3-year old computer.
I have been reading about the new N-series wireless routers and am wondering if that is what I need. I am willing to purchase one of these routers, but will be very disappointed if it does not solve the problem.
Any help and advice that you can give would be most appreciated!
