View Full Version : How to get robust wifi ???

January 1st, 2010, 02:05 PM
I use my Acer Aspireone Netbook primarily when on holiday, so I need it to connect anywhere where there is a wifi signal.

After a few connection problems last year I changed OS to Netbook remix, changed the wifi card to an Intel 5300 and used WICD as the network manager.

All went well until WICD suddenly decided it wouldn't connect to any wireless or WIRED network in Lao.
I had Moblin on a USB stick and when booting that up, the wifi worked just fine. Therefore indicating it is a software problem.

Question is, what's the best set up for wifi that works anywhere were a signal is provided?

I don't want to be struggling when all the other visitors with MS or Apple OS are surfing away. WICD seemed like quite a professional tool until the day it stopped working.
