I'm using the above at home both hard wired and wirelessly. However the latter is causing me immense problems where trying to connect and maintain connections is concerned from my laptop.
The laptop is running XP service pack 3. I currently have it sat next to the Router and from the "Choose a wireless network" list the signal strength is two bars. I have just refreshed the list and lo and behold the router has disappeared completely, but some other 8 wireless networks from around the area are still displayed with varying signal strengths, some better than I had. When I have a signal I have trouble connecting and when connected the signal drops out and usually requires me to switch the router off and on again in order for the network list to see it and so it goes on.
Can anyone help me here, please? Iím at the end of my tether. Iíve changed a number of settings on the router in order to try and inject some stability, the most recent being running a product called inSSIDer beforehand, in order to see what the other networks are doing and then subsequently changing the Channel from 11 to 2 as a number of them were using 11, but basically all to no avail.
Normally the Laptop is about 30ft from the Router in a different room so it's effectively useless as far as the Internet is concerned. The connectivity has been an issue since I have had this Router, but of late it's just getting worse. My PC is hardwired in to the Router and I have no problems at all.
If I need a new Router then so be it as I can't keep messing around like this.
