Thank you for choosing FixYa!

Regarding your concern, placing a computer right next to the router is not a very good idea. Why? because it is a source of EMI (Electro-Magetic Interference), which causes:
>Inability to connect
>Intermittent Connection
>Undetected wireless signal
>and very poor wireless signal

Not only that, the equipments below are sources of EMI's
>Halogen Lamps
>Cellular phones
>Wireless phones
>Electronic Devices
>Fire Alarms
>Computer sitting on metal surfaces
>Computer sitting on carpeted floors

Here's a suggestion:
>Place the computer at least 6ft away from the router
>Make sure that there are no equipments mentioned above, within 3ft near the router
>Open a browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, Google Chrome, or Ubuntu) anything will do.
>Then access your router's page by typing on the address bar of your browser and hit Enter.
>Logon to your router by leaving the Username blank and in the Password box just type "admin" (without the quotation marks " " )
>Click on the Channels and SSID link under Wireless. (as shown below)
>The only thing you can play with wil be the channels.
>There only are 3 Clear Channels that you need to choose from. Channel 1, 6, and 11
>Switch channels between those 3 mentioned above and check which channel has the Excellent signal and save the settings by clicking Save below the page

Android 2.2 has wifi problems. But you can do radio site survey and connect hotspot to see what went wrong? you may have signal interference from refrigerator or other sources. Or moving objects reflecting wifi signals. Most wifi/g/n chipsets use ofdm mode which has more signal problems than the /b DSSS mode. We are recommending older laptops to use /b wifi cards.

MY G1 won't dial from the contacts list.

you probably had the sim card in a phone that had text messages stored on it.....might be time for a new sim card.....

try turning off the handset and turning it on again. eitherway, if you replace the sim card that should update the voicemail number in the network fixing that error. or just call t-mobile at 1800-937-8997 and they should be able to gix it from there. this is a network malfunction that cannot be fixed from your end if the powercycle fails. good luck!

It certainly sounds like a driver issue. Did your driver installation fix the yellow mark in the Device Manager?

If not, then try the web site of your laptop or network card manufacturer for the latest driver for your operating system.

Assuming you are in windows, then try clicking START & select Run. Type "cmd" into the window.

You will get a black window. Type:

ipconfig /all

If it lists your network adapter then it is installed correctly. If you just get a blank, then you need to work on the driver issue.
