Can't keep a steady wireless connection
Several months ago I bought Linksys WUSB54G adapter to connect my 2-nd
computer wirelessly to internet.But,unforunately, the whole thing works very
poor.It has veeeery slow transfer speed: usually like 100-150k (tested
at [url]www.toast.net[/url]) instead of 800k and more. Some webpages open more
than 1 minute.No changes even if I put adapter very close to
router.(Computer and internet works great when connected by cable)
The connection becomes slower and slower and less steady, and after 1-2 days
stops totally.Then I have to reset(turn off/on) the router and connection
appears again.And so on this way since 5 months.
I think i checked everything: system reinstallation, antivir soft, Spybot,
cleaning, delete cookies,reinstalling adapter`s soft, changing
adapter`s channels, resetting router etc.etc.
I turned off all radio devices which could interfere.
I spent several hours talking
to Sympatico and Linksys tech support staff trying to resolve problem - with
effect.Then I exchanged Speedstream router(now I have 5220 model) -
situation became even worse.
Maybe something wrong with adapter? Can you give me a hint?
I would really appreciate any help with this one.
AMD 1800+, 512MbRam, HD 80GB, asRock mainboard
System:Windows XP SP2
ISP:Bell Sympatico, High speed
SpeedStream router provided by Sympatico.
Straight line distance router-adapter ~ 10 feet, through ceiling.
Apologising for my poor english, with regards
