    Re: Wireless Connection Issues

    Hi, your link quality is low get right next to your router and see if your speed increases.

    Go into your router settings and set your encryption to just wpa2 if possible.

    In network manager is MTU set to auto?

    Did you do anything to try to force a higher speed like 54 mbs?

    Please post the contents of:
    Code:
    gksu gedit /etc/modprobe.d/rt61pci.conf
    Thanks

    Re: Wireless Connection Issues

    Hi,

    OK, I'll try to move things about; the router is in the other room and the computer is a big beast, but I will do what I can.

    Not quite sure how to change the router settings - jiggered if I can remember the login name and password for it, but will dig them out.

    MTU is set to auto.

    I've done nothing to try and force higher speeds - if I'm honest, I wouldn't know how

    Contents:
    Code:
    options rt61pci nohwcrypt=1
    Thanks again

    Re: Wireless Connection Issues

    You've been more than helpful, thank you. I may swap out the adaptor at some point, otherwise I'll run an extension to the phone socket and put the router in the office here with me.

    Thank you again, wildemanne39.
