Question about Belkin (F5D7050) 802.11a/g/b Wireless Adapter
I am using talktalk modem/router echolife hg520 on a BT landline.Therouter is sited in upstairs bedroom and has a wired XBOX live connected to it.My pc is sited downstairs and im using the G+ adapter to make the 5metre connection.
(1)leaving the xbox switched off. I first switch on the router (upstairs) then,
(2)moving down stairs i now switch on my pc and adapter:-
From the time i switch on the pc, it takes at least 3minutes but,often longer before the system tells me its running smoothly. Is it normal to take so long or am i right in thinking this connections abit slow?
That does seem a long time to connect... is it the wireless connection or getting an IP that is the delay... if it's IP then the network icon in the taskbar will have a moving part to the icon rather than being static... kinda yello ball running along a wire (if ya know what I mean)
try THIS util to see what your signal strength is and if there any other services sharing the same channel. Maybe you need to change the channel of the router?
