Question about Computers & Internet

2 Answers

I have a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo laptop with an Intel PRO Wireless 3945ABG wireless card. Even with the laptop right next to my BT Home Hub the signal strength is only 3 bars out of 5 ! It means I cannot use it in other rooms in the house without continually dropping connections. My other (work) laptop has full signal strength even in other rooms of the house, so this is not a Home Hub issue. Can I change the settings on the 3945ABG to improve the performance or should I just replace it with something better ?

Computer does not connect


NEW LAPTOP? Noticed a lot of post for same Laptop as same time.
If try to use wireless - you need to set-up wireless part of router and wireless part of laptop (Wireless Software).
Setup your network same it is on the PC.
Use Network setup wizard, if not know how in system manager, in the control panel.
Network Name is same on both, MYHOUSE is good.
The only thing different should be NAME, like SYS02,
PC would be SYS01, and IPaddress ( first 3 sections same as PC - Last section is indivual system - example follows:
PC = 192.168.1.40 then LT = 192.168.1.41
Suggest you hard wire laptop to router to verify network connection then work on wireless connection setup after you get connected thru hard line.

Can not pick up wireless internet on it


If the wireless card is working with the correct driver it will automatically see any wireless networks within range.
Check in device manager that the computer is seeing the wireless card, if it is try updating the driver from the Fujitsu support site, you will obviously have to connect direct to your router to get on the net.
If the Arial leads are not tight on the card it will not see anything even if right next to the router.
You can strip down to the wireless card by following a solution I recently posted on how to changing the COMS battery.
