I hate Dl-524 wireless router and a wireless card that is supposed to work with it. I've installed everything right, the router and the computer with the wireless card aren't far apart, but it doesnt always pick up the singnal, and when it does the strenght is very low. and whnever i move the comptuer with the wireless card the connection gets lost. This is bothering me because it used to work fine(singnal strenght was always high and such) until I had to reboot all my computer and I also reset my wireless router. My internet connection type is DSL, can anyone help me with this, I've been trying to fix it forever.

Download Tune up utilities 2006 trial. Open the program, go to Optimize & Improve>TuneUp System Optimizer>Internet Optimization. Let the program optimize your internet connection.

If that doesn't do the trick, get back to this topic and I'll see what else I can do.

alright, thanks for helping me out here. I did what you said but it didnt work. This is odd. The computer with the wireless card picks up 2 or 3 sources. (i can choose between different channels or whatever) and they both have a different signal strenght and I'm not sure if I made them (one of the is called default and the other is called "home") about an hour ago i made a new one called "MAIN ROUTER" just so that i would know for sure that its my router and no one elses. the computer picked that one up and the internet worked (But the signal strenght was still low... 20%, but before i reset my router it used to be 70-80%) as soon as i moved my computer about 4 inches, the connection was lost (the one i called MAIN ROUTER) and now it doesnt pick it up at all anymore. It still picks up the two other sources but the internet doesn't work with either one of those.

K, I did that but when I restarted my computer nothing showed up, (I don't know if this is because I'm using Win2000) but anyways the computer reads the card (I went in add/remove hardware and it was there, saying it was working properly)... I have the cd for the drive, it came with the card, but even then, I actually installed the driver today and the problems are still the same.

Sorry for the edit I just made in my post.

Install all the drivers you have for the card and reboot.

Do any yellow !'s show up in device manager now?

connect to your router with an ethernet cable and get to the router's config page (put the ip address into your webbrowser)....rename the network to something obvious (i know you said you made somenthing main router...but you didn't say where you did that...if you did this on the router then never mind)
