Question about NetGear WG111 802.11g/b Wireless Adapter
Hello I have a wireless router and 4 computers 2 being laptops which have wireless and 2 homebases bothe homebases have a netgear adapter installed. 1 works fine and stays connected the other keeps disconnecting and having problems i have search the internet for a solution and i think it might be because both home bases are using the same channel is this correct
When you say home bases, i assume you mean desktop pc's. If the channel you mention is the channel that the router works off eg channel 11 then all wireless adapters have to be set to channel 11, or the same channel as the router. The reason for one disconnecting from the internet will probably be the adapter losing the signal because of obstacles like walls and doors, as if the signal gets too low then the reciever cannot connect properly with the router, hence dropping the connection. Try the router in a different higher position or at a phone socket nearer the troubled pc. The connection accross the network should be atleast good and at 54 MBPS, anything less may not connect properly. The laptops will tend to have a stronger connection as most have a signal up booster built in the screen.
