    Angry Unique Wireless Problem!

    I am about dizzy digging through forums trying to solve this and while I have seen many many wireless probs, I haven't seen anything quite like this one.

    I have 9.10 on an old Inspiron B130 and while I have been able to connect to many OTHER wireless routers I can't connect to MINE! lol

    The router is encrypted (as are others I've connected to) and when I try to connect I can see good signal strength, there are a few packets received and sent and yet it never connects. Here is some info, maybe someone has an answer.

    Oh, and did I mention that from time to time it WILL connect?! Not in a while though.

    Mac's and other Windows PC's connect just fine.

    Re: Unique Wireless Problem!

    Are you able to bypass the router and get a decent connection hardwired?

    Signal level:-47 dBm Noise level:-96 dBm
    These numbers seem a little low which might be causing the intermittent connection to your router. Not sure about that at all really though. I'm gonna look it up.

    What's your ip address when you're connected to your network and when you're hardwired?
    There is a light that never goes out...over and over again.

    Ok, Signal and noise should be good. I was wrong in about that, but at least I learned something new.

    Yes, I can connect hardwired. I can't test the ip address right now, I will try tomorrow if you think it will help, as I said though, it does connect slightly for a short bit (tiny transfer of data). If I attempt to connect to an encrypted router without the right password there is no such transfer.

    Yeah, not sure, just thought maybe it could maybe offer some insight.

    Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers on this partition?
